Nice looking pond.  Looks like a good place to rest and relax, watching the fish.

Kittie Cat (That's her name) likes to hand out but isn't interested in fruits and veggies.  She likes licking the juice off from canned cat food, so is always nearby hoping - correctly - that some will be forthcoming.

Oh, I was wondering about your cat as well.  It looks like he thinks you've got something good to eat.  Or, just curious, as cats are want to be.

Sentient, I'll bet you're not a tenth as envious as me.  I'm constantly wishing I had gardens like yours (even with the little beasties that like to eat it). Your today's crop looks luscious.  Makes my mouth water.

Instead of waiting to afford the perfect place, I should probably just get an acre somewhere I can afford now, and stop being envious.

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.

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 28, 2013 at 3:53pm

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.
