This weekend I actually harvested a cantaloupe! Friday evening’s cookout with the Three Kids, Two Sticks clan was the perfect excuse to try it. The smallest member of the clan saw me coming up the driveway and asked, “When can I have a cantaloupe?” He lovingly named it Beverly, and proceeded to hold and caress it throughout the evening.
After dinner was done – delicious chicken sausage, burgers, dogs, roasted corn salad, tomato-basil salad, green salad, and unbelievable cream-based potato salad – my young friend reminded me that it was time for cantaloupe. Indeed. We headed inside to prepare it. Documentation below. Kid pictures included with parental permission.
