Default My 1st Ambrosia Melon!

Ok, this is really just a “woo-hoo look at my melon” post!
I have never grown muskmelons successfully prior to this season. So far I’ve had a couple of pretty decent tasting/sized container-grown Hale’s Best Jumbo melons, but nothing like this 1st (in-ground trellised) Ambrosia that slipped last night! Sorry that I didn’t get a picture of it cut, but hopefully the next couple slung out there will be just as big!
I’m actually unsure about whether or not I just “like” the taste of this melon or if I REALLY like it! it has sort of a grassy/floral hint combined with outstanding sweetness...I’m just gonna’ keep eating it until I decide!
Nonetheless, woo-hoo!
