Fresh Produce! And a new type of melon that we haven't eaten before.

I'm running really far behind with these posts. This is the produce basket that I picked up from my Bountiful Baskets site on the last Saturday in June. When I arrived to pick up my produce, I saw a melon that I had seen before so I was anxious to get it home & cut it open.

Here is what I got in my basket that day:
Cabbage, green leaf lettuce, 2 celery stalks, broccoli, 4 green bell peppers, 
5 Roma tomatoes, 9 apricots, 6 red pears, 1 pint of blueberries & a Canary melon.

I got all of this for $18.50 (which includes the $3.50 which is added to each order in Texas to contribute to the fuel costs for the trucks). We tried the Canary melon as soon as I got home. It has a very pale green flesh that is lighter than a Honeydew melon. It tastes a bit like a cantaloupe but not quite as sweet. We did like the flavor but I probably won't go out of my way to buy one because we love cantaloupe, especially the Tuscan variety.

Until next time....
