Cantaloupes with first flowers

I thought the cantaloupe that I had planted would die while we were gone since we weren't here to water them, but since it rained enough, most of the established plants survived! Yea!

Yesterday when I watered them, they didn't have any flowers, not one. Today, I go out and they're chock full of them. I don't see anything that looks like a tiny melon, though. :-(

Does anyone know about how long it takes for them to produce pickable cantaloupe after they show their first flowers? Any other tidbits of cantaloupe info is also appreciated....
