The next is the Melon which are a particular favourite of the gentleman to the big house so I have plenty of these growing. The one you see in the picture is the most advanced. The reason for it being in the net bag is to support it as it grows, the bag is tied to the wire, if this weren't done there is a chance of it being pulled off by it's own weight before it's ready to eat although as you may be able to tell the bag isn't actually supporting it at the moment but it will do in time.
This afternoon I had Tess in the garden with me for a while as I dead headed the Dahlia's and I think she got stung by a wasp on the foot. I saw her under the Mulberry tree which tends to be a magnet for wasps and with the wind today there are a lot of berries blown off on to the ground and I think she must have troden on one so I will have to watch her more closely in the future.
