We are growing our own cantaloupe this year and wanted to show the progress to those growing cantaloupe of their own. We will document the growth of our cantaloupes using pictures, since most people are visual (like us) and learn best from what they look like.
Cantaloupe Picture 4 Weeks Above Ground – The hot weather has really helped these guys grow. Most of the cantaloupe plants are now showing some big true leaves. This one even has two!
Cantaloupe Picture 1 Week Above Ground – Now beginning to sprout their first true leaves, the cantaloupe are really growing. They seem slow, but with the weather getting nice and hot – they should be getting big in no time.
Cantaloupe Picture Sprout’s 1st Day – This is the first day our cantaloupes were above ground. The sprouts were so cute, and we caught them the first day before they even stretched out to grab the sun.
as a child i would eat whole cantalopes by myself. i think those are going to be delicious.
Looks really good, we’re still quite a bit colder in Seattle than normal, I’m afraid to plant yet and have everything rot.
Sheri – Thanks for coming by, are you Sheri from Mixx? We are lucky to live in Texas and it is already getting hot. Supposed to be up to 96 next week!
Thank you for posting these photos. This is the first year I am growing cantaloupe. I am trying the small French size, but I had no idea what the seedlings looked like. This was a problem, because the birds scattered bird seed into my growing patch and I didn’t know what was growing from a seedling I planted and what was from the birdseed that needed pulling!
As a little girl growing up i once wished to stroke such a grand fruit mabey i can have a second chance now! +/
