I came across a store bought honey dew / cantaloupe cross that
was quite tasty. How would I process the seeds if I want
to try growing one or two? They are sitting inside the melon
in water and not sprouting, so I was wondering?
Wonder if the seeds would give me the same melon too.
Interesting. The store called it a "orange meat melon".
I am wondering is Honeylope or Canadew would be a better
name. On second thought, that second candidate might be
considered rude in some circles. :-D
We always put them between two paper towels and let them dry. Once you
plant them you will need to water them frequently too.
Nowadays we just eat seedless watermelon and generally toast and eat the
cantaloupe seeds while watching mindless television shows.
No, we spit out the shell. Just crack them between your teeth and ptoo
the shell, chew the innards and do it again.
A beautiful Saturday morning here in Harris Cty, TX, what a change from
yesterday's intermittent rain.
I'm trouble shooting a fifteen year old computer and have come to the
conclusion that that sucker is truly dead. At least I got all the good
stuff off of it. Nothing lasts forever I reckon.
Although I have no experience with any melon crosses, I do know the
seeds from the typical cantaloupes we get here in NJ (NOT muskmelons),
germinate rather easily. I know this because when I took the top off
the compost bin yesterday, the top layer was covered in cantaloupe
That said, any fruiting that occurs will be one big crap shoot. Still,
if you have the space, garden experiments are always fun.
Two years ago we pot holed the carcass of a large cantaloupe in one of
our fence line beds. A month later it was covered with vines and we
harvested three cantaloupes. Somewhat smaller than the original but,
IMHO, much tastier than the original. Alas, the seeds from those were
planted but did not grow, might have been the heat that year.
That crap shoot paid off but many don't. I'm looking for some beef
Unless you are one of the unfortunate folks with Celiac, grow wheat,
make seitan. I still eat meat, but a well-seasoned hunk of "wheat meat"
is not something I'm averse to - I've had knockwurst that were identical
in flavor and texture to the real thing. Not quite going to get there
for a plain grilled steak, but any seasoned dish it can be awfully
close, and beats the heck out of tofu 10 times out of 10.
Cats, coffee, chocolate...vices to live by
Please don't feed the trolls. Killfile and ignore them so they will go away.
I eat vegetables, make my own bread, mostly whole wheat or multiple
grains. I still eat meat, mostly two or three times a week. I've never
had faux meat though.
Multiple heart attacks, coronary bypass, diabetes, multiple strokes,
etc. I eat what I want, I will soon be 77 years old and, like Frank
Sinatra sings, I'm going to do it my way. <G>
I was eating healthy, organic stuff when I had all those strokes.
We're enrolled in the only five star Medicare Advantage Plan in the
United States, Kelsey-Seybold. They take good care of us. I'm in the
middle of a prolonged nuclear testing for my heart, it is a PITA but
might help with some of the health problems I have.
I've been carrying diabetes around since the early nineties and had my
first heart attack even earlier than that. It all comes from eating the
white man's food. Luckily I have a grandson who hunts so we get venison,
wild pig, etc. occasionally.
I have a customer that hunts. Sometimes I score some wild
meat, but only once or twice a year. The rest of the
time, I am on grass fed beef. Have not figured out
what seeds that are using to grow them yet. I think
they are holding out on me. :-)
And you actually have to ask/demand they check your homocysteine,
as they don't make any money off the treatment. It is a sad
commentary on our medical establishment, but you have to demand
the test anyway. And they will try to talk you out of it.
Again, no money involved.
Look up homocysteine on the web. It is probably what was
responsible for your strokes and heart attacks. Maybe not, but
check the damned thing anyway!
And if it is high and they won't tell you the treatment, I will.
Nag, nag, nag. Hey, nagging is kind of fun!
I have heard that said several places before.
The big issue is that Big Med is now the number one killer (Death
by medical), not heart disease. Big Med just admitted that
hospital infections are now the number three killer. So, when
do your use them and when to avoid them is the big question.
They have saved my life three times so far. I don't want to
die of a hospital infection like my two in-laws or of punctured
colon from a scan probe, as did one of my customer's mothers,
or a bleed out from rat poison, as did another customers mother,
etc. etc. etc.
So when to use them and when to avoid them? The Er doctor who
diagnosed me with T2 was dead accurate on all his recommendations
(he also was the the one who saved my life twice). The GP I went
to, withheld information and I don't think he had clue other
that drugs and carbs.
So how to avoid walking in and being carried out in a bag?
There is a lot of fraud in Beg Med: cholesterol testing, flue
shot, acid blockers, rat poison, drugs and carbs (T2) yada,
yada, yada. Seems to me you are lucky if you find an allopath
that "heals" rather than gets rich off of "treating". I do
know one. :-)
