Ambrosia Cantelope

I'm very excited about this little melon ball!  We haven't grown cantelopes (or watermelon) in ages. They take up a lot of room and tend to get aphids that cover the leaves and sicken the plant before the melons can ever ripen.  I'm doing a bit of research on ways to combat the ahpid infestations should we encounter them.  Ladybugs do a great job on my roses, but then I have the luxury of not caring if a few flowers die off....... Stay tuned :)
