There is just something about them. They are better than any other regional melon I’ve had. It’s something worth waiting for. Talk about good will and generosity; in Hermiston, farm trucks roll down the street giving free melons to the people in town.
I know Hermiston melons have been available for weeks now and I’ve purchased four or five so far this year, but the time for melons will be drawing to a close soon. The time for fresh ears of corn will draw to a close soon, too. Artichokes will follow closely behind.
I write this post as a reminder to those of you that haven’t had a slice of melon yet this year that time is running out.
