The Prize Winner

MelonHere’s the one watermelon we were able to grow this year.  A miniature variety?  Nope.  Just an example of what not to do.  What’s amazing is it was delicious inside.  It’s bigger than the pumpkins we were able to get this season.  The vines were gorgeous but, despite our best efforts, the bugs got them.  We sprayed everything we had on a daily basis, picked the bugs off and removed their eggs from the leaves every morning and they beat us anyways.  We think it takes something non-organic to defeat them and are considering getting an aresenal of the bad stuff and moving the pumpkin patch to our back yard next year far from everything else we grow for food.
