Melons are in season

One of the laws of fruits and vegetables is that bigger is almost never better, but melons are an exception. Tapley Farms sells melons at the Palo Alto Farmers Market, and their melons are, well, mondo. And they taste the way a great melon ought to taste... just shy of too sweet, with a strong perfume. You walk in the door and you know you bought a melon. Orange flesh honeydew last week, sharlyn this week. Apparently they are not organic, but there are definitely times when principle must make way for pleasure.
