thought I might do a time lapse of a rock melon developing.
I'm not sure why, but I like rock melon a lot.
The might be called cantaloupe in your part of the world.
Either way, I have some growing.
The white splodge at the bottom is the time lapse camera.
It's facing toward the extremity of the rock melon vine centre top.
The plan is to capture a rock melon forming from scratch.
Apparently I have around a month. With that time in mind, I've set the camera to take a frame every so often.
I really dont know how often, but having set it up, I'm loathe to change anything because it would mean the loss of all the pics to date.
That's the big problem with this camera. You don't really know when it's working or not. It even pretends to be working when there is no memory card installed. That means it seems to be working, and it only takes a month before you realise the thing doesn't have a card in place.
One month to take a picture of nothing.
Oh well. It hasn't happened so far, so I guess it isn't really a problem.
Currently it's a hand fertilized flower in the last stages of it's flowery existence.
Hopefully, over the next few weeks, we will see a rock melon grow to harvest.
If not, there is a strawberry runner incoming from stage left that might make for a decent set of time lapse images.
A month or so from now, all will be revealed.
