Anybody been to the Crane Melon Barn this year? [Santa Rosa]

I drove up from Berkeley last year and got two lousy melons, but in the past I have had Crane melons that were to die for. If the Barn has melons like that I would make the trip again.

    I haven't made it up yet, but the weather's been a lot more favorable this year.

      Better than speculating would be calling, (707) 795-6987. This morning's message was the barn will open in mid-September. Keep checking and when someone answers ask.

        Rode there on our bikes last week. The barn is full of fragrant melons. Definitely call first, but they're in their prime right now.

          Lots of good ones yesterday. Supposed to rain up to three inches Monday so get them while you can.

            Went yesterday, great melons! Another week at most. Get them now or wait till next year.
