Melon Fence Harvest
I managed to get my first harvest from the fence a couple of days ago. About two xiang gua rotted away before I got to it but there are still a couple of the mini melons hanging there and turning a tinge of yellow. They are about the size of tennis balls .... some are slightly bigger though.
Had my first taste of the melons below. My first time eating such small melons. They were crunchy with a refresing taste but not as sweet as I would like them to be. Perhaps it could be due to the many afternoon rains that could have affected the sweetness during harvest time.
My fellow CGers are looking forward to eating them but I am afraid that they would be disappointed about the level of sweetness these melons have to offer.
