Thanks for the pics!

Looks very good, Spud! I hope they will ripen in time!

Such a wonderful harvest, Sentient! Do you have to share with your cat?

And thanks fot the broccoli comments! I'll try to grow them next year.

Spud, your melons are doing great!  I would be envious, but each place has it's advantages.  OK, I'm envious!

Here's a little of my crop today.

Spud, I love seeing your garden and all the work you did to make it healthy! Good plan with the blackberries. Happy eating!

Beautiful!  Good luck with the watermelon.

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 28, 2013 at 4:04pm

Here's a close-up of the largest watermelon (7 inches) that you can see in the  upper left of the previous picture.  It has a few yellow spots as it's supposed to have, but hasn't turned purple yet.  I don't know if it will.  

I got the seeds from Territorial Seed company and they showed them as purple with yellow spots, but Google pictures shows purple and green Moon and Stars watermelon.

Here's my Moon & Stars watermelon plant.  Some of the leaves have yellow spots on them as they are supposed to.  One or two leaves are mostly yellow.  

In the center of the picture is my quick & dirty scaffolding I put up to keep the watermelon from covering my blackberry.  I've tied the blackberry stems up out of the way.  I imagine they also prefer to be away from the black garden fabric that gets very hot.  The watermelon loves it.

I planted the blackberry there this spring before I got it into my head to modify the soil for watermelon.  I just dug around the blackberry.

Randall, I don't remember eating dehydrated pears, so I'll do that to some of my pears and see.

Comment by Annie Thomas on July 28, 2013 at 2:37pm

Ooh!  Nice head of broccoli!  When you no longer get any florets, we like to peel the stem, slice it into thin medallions, and squirt a little Bragg's on it.  Yum!  Enjoy.

Comment by Randall Smith on July 28, 2013 at 7:26am

Patricia, nice broc! After I cut off that first big head, the plant will produce "mini's" for several months thereafter. And we all know it's a "super food".

Spud, if you've never tried dehydrated pears, you don't know what you're missing! Chewy and sweet as candy. And they don't take up freezer space.

Good morning! What a nice bee picture!
