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.  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.  🙂

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

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.

The Squash are probably the furthest ahead and about to set out vines. Watermelons are a bit behind after the struggles with mice eating seed and replantings. Image
