New sign!

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

Planted Watermelons last weekend!

Dad planted 10 rows of Black Diamonds last weekend, so the season is officially on! He also expanded his canteloupe by planting 900 seeds in the first planting of those. Then he went out the next day and field mice decimated the planting. Ate nearly every seed in the row. He has declared war on the mice and set many traps out to battle the problem. That’s it for now!
