Watermelons are Finally done

Posted in Black Diamond Melons with tags , , , , , on September 29, 2013 by Scottman

Well, I think the melons are done. Dad said he doesn’t want to sell them anymore for fear of the chance someone may get a bad one. Β At the end of the season it gets incredibly harder to tell when they are past ripe. They all thump about the same now.

We do however have some pumpkins and a few crook neck squash if anyone is interested in any of those. Β πŸ™‚

Will be in Shenandoah 3:00-5:30 pm with another truckload of Black Diamond Watermelons and possibly some pumpkins as well. Same place – where the Little Duffer use to be at the four way. πŸ™‚

New Conservation sign was put up and I did a little photo doctoring in photoshop to make a few changes to it. πŸ™‚

Patch Update

Things are still looking good, but a rain could be used to send them on a growing spurt. Think Dad would like some of the rows to start growing together so we can make the call to stop hoeing them.
