Will be at Popcorn Day in Hamburg with Watermelons tomorrow! We picked around 39 melons tonight.  That’s all we will have for the day unfortunately, but at least we have some. So look for us in the park tomorrow!  🙂

3 weeks and we may have some melons!

Was home last weekend and Dad said that he estimates 3 weeks and we may see some watermelons ready to eat.

So stay tuned for updates for when we start picking some watermelons to sell!  🙂   —  Scott

They're looking really good right now.  First plantings are vining out 6-8 inches long.  Plants have truned a dark color and are large husky plants.

I've gotten a little behind on planting Cantelope due to getting furniture and such moved before the flood waters get in town.

If the river doesn't get them, they are looking good for now.
