Yum!

 
No doubt about the quality in today. Lots of work and too hot and humid, but I bought a new kind of melon to try. It's called Lemondrop.

Wow! It's like a honeydew with more than a drop of lemon. I like it a LOT. Not quite ripe. I'll bet it gets even more lemony.

Notice the skin is like a cantaloupe with smooth pale green stripes, in case you see one and it's not labeled.

And I can't resist showing you last night's sunset. Sorry about the wires. They are there. What can I do?

I'm off to work soon. Cooler at night and the building is air conditioned. Still hot, but not like working outside. I feel bad for people who had to work outdoors today.

And, it's my dad's birthday. He would have been 112, and he died 40 years ago yesterday. Link below if you didn't see previous post about him.

That melon sounds good. I've never tried one before. I'll have to look for them

If you see the wires in that pic, you are looking at the wrong thing. Will keep an eye out for that kind of melon.
