First Cantaloupe

We planted cantaloupe many years ago.  We've never planted it again, but it always springs up on its own in our garden.  It's not really a good thing because the vine spreads like crazy causing problems for the other plants and we usually only get about 2 good cantaloupes out of the entire season.

But for some reason (laziness?  optimism?) I let it grow every year.

And this week we enjoyed the first ripe cantaloupe.  It's odd shape lent itself to decoration with a sharpie.

It was sweet, better than the ones I've bought at the store so far, but probably not worth the fact that our garden has been taken over.
