Last Friday Brad had one of those days… they didn’t have enough pollinator plants (more on this later) for one of the watermelon varieties and a water line at an employee house was busted with water running all over the place. On Brad’s dad’s first attempt to go get more plants, the trailer he was pulling broke a few miles from the barn because some part wasn’t put back on properly; then on his second attempt to pick up plants, he had a wreck. Thankfully he’s okay.
It worked out that I was available (I’m always willing, of course!), so Blair and I headed out to pick up the plants!
We hopped in Brad’s truck and made the hour drive to the grower. Their greenhouses were the first sign that we were in the right place!
They had a place where they had some plants boxed up ready to travel.
They loaded us up and tied us down! We had a full load!
While all of the loading was going on this is what was going on inside the truck. (Notice the cheesits and the hoodlum-like expression.)
Blair also practiced her photographic artistry.
We had to make a pit stop on the way home… this girl can’t go to a big city and pass up Chick-fil-a!
More watermelon posts to come… I’ve got pictures taken for a post about plastic and beds – watermelon beds, that is!
