Oh yes, I like that concept, and it bears repeating: "the farmers footprints are the best fertilizer". Thanks for sharing Ning.

Had my last radiation about an hour ago and I am still alive. Limp and alive!

Joan that saying has a lot of wisdom! I never like mediocrity but there is no such thing as perfect either. In fact nothing even comes close to perfect.

Somewhere there is a "Chinese" saying. I put in quotes because Ning never heard it before I told him. "the farmers footprints are the best fertilizer". Meaning by being in the gardn often, we see what needs to be done, and do it, and it doesnt fall to neglect. Which is basically the same, for me, as "puttering meditation". Which gives me peace of mind and helps the garden grow.

Daniel, I laughed when I read your comment because you thought of voles and moles and I thought of hawks. So, a structure with lower and upper protection would be perfect. Oh! I like the old saying, "Don't make perfect the enemy of good"!

No matter, it all involves a lot of work. Right now, my task is to get GM-free-seeds and plan for spring. Even the thought inspires me.

A lot of work and well done! Looks like a lovely garden.

Please send Daniela over to do the same for my garden! :) Perfect!

Well, not sure if it will help with voles and moles. But it looks great!

Here is a well protected garden!

Thanks for your insights on melons Randall, and, your good wishes. : )

I didn't notice any of mine tasting sour, so maybe they weren't overripe.

Anyway, I look forward to learning more in years to come, and hope I can acquire a little land, so I can grow more varieties every year.

Spud: Like most fruits, watermelons do taste different according to "ripeness". Your first one probably wasn't ready. Overripe ones begin to taste sour. My father still rates cantelopes on a 1 to 10 scale. May you continue to get 10s!

I've been enjoying eating my watermelon, and they taste much better than they did at first.

I don't know why that is.  High expectations?  Doesn't seem likely.  Flavor improved while in the refrigerator?  People say that they don't ripen anymore once they're picked, but maybe the flavor can improve if they're already ripe (or overripe).  Any thoughts?
