Lissa spotted this California desert treat this morning at Trader Joe’s in Albuquerque:

It’s a cantaloupe from Fisher Ranch in Blythe, Calif., owned by Bart Fisher, vice president of the Palo Verde Irrigation District board and chairman of the Colorado River Board of California. I pronounce this a fine use of senior Colorado River water rights, helping to grow yummy treats.
