People told us we couldn’t grow melons here, so of course we had to try.  It’s challenging for sure…but when we have reasonable weather, we are able to grow decent size  cantaloupe, muskmelon, watermelon, honeydew, and yellow watermelon.  Melons are finicky here in the Northland, and they don’t like lots of wind.  When we do get a decent crop, which is usually 3 out of 4 years, the flavor is absolutely outstanding.
