Muscatine cantaloupe are so yummy

We have been waiting all summer for a good, sweet cantaloupe. Well, we finally found one. It is Muscatine Cantaloupe time. I have been saying we should just quit buying cantaloupe till the Muscatine melons are ready. They are ready. And they are as sweet and juicy as we anticipated they would be. Muscatine cantaloupes are huge melons. They got their name because they originally were grown only in that part of Iowa. I am not sure that is true anymore. The Muscatine, Iowa area’s sandy soil makes these the best melons around.

One cup measuring cup for size comparison.

This one gallon container is so full I can't get the lid on. I have a great solution to that problem, tho.
I will just have to eat some.

Looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Hope you enjoy yours.
