The Tigger Melon! While our rapidly producing tomato plants are getting a lot of attention, there are a lot of wonderful things growing the garden. After my week of vacation, I was excited to come back and see how far our tigger melons have come. When these melons ripen they will be bright yellow with a vibrant red zig-zag pattern. They are very fragrant and have a white flesh. It is really fascinating to see these large melons in every stage of growth, starting out as just a seed, then producing a vast plant with large, beautiful flowers, and then the melons slowly emerging out of these flowers and ripening into vibrant fruit.
