The last time I bought a cantaloupe (a grocery store one, not even a good local one), I ate it all by myself in two days, so I was really excited for more melon. I should have dug in the change area in my car to scrape together enough to get a second cantaloupe!

I bought a nifty Pampered Chef corn stripper tool that I've been excited to use. You boil all your corn like you do normally and eat as many as you want. For any uneaten ears, use the kernel cutter to cut the corn off from the cob and then freeze it in freezer bags. That's why I bought a dozen, I knew if we didn't eat it all, we'd be able to save it for this fall and winter. You can use a knife to cut the corn off the cob, but it's a little more dicey. You have to know what you're doing, it's a pretty dangerous gig to try to wrangle an unstable ear of corn along with a big sharp knife. And it's not too efficient, the knife blade is flat, but the corncob is curved. But if you are good at it, I'm sure it's quite quick.
