A Few Weeks to Watermelons

Blair and I went back out to the same little spot in a watermelon field that we had been to at the end of March right before planting and then again in early May a few weeks after the plants were planted. It sure looks a lot different now!


Blair spotted some baby watermelons.

Tap, tap. Not ready yet!

And a big one too!

This one's close!

Too heavy!

Below is the spot where I took this picture before the plants were in the ground.


The watermelon vines look so pretty from a distance. You can see a bunch of baby watermelons along the "middle"!


And I love this one showing the rows. They turn back the vines to the harvesting crews can drive down in between the rows. Brad says they look like green pillows -- and they do!


Not too much longer!
