Welcome to our watermelon patch my friends! Because of our long winter, it had a slow start gettin' goin', but now it's really going! I am so impressed...so far no caterpillars! Gosh I hope I didn't just jinx that. The little yellow flowers are peeping out everywhere with the promise of melons soon to sprout. Though I hope they hurry up as I may not be able to defend our watermelon patch for long against a bigger predator. Joe has a different view of our patch..."that looks so awful, it looks like a weed," he says. My reply to him, "be patient my dear, watermelons need time & lots of encouragement." I giggled as I turned around knowing that we will have so many watermelons that he'll be grinnin' from ear to ear.
Happy Gardening & Best Wishes,
