Watermelon Growing


#882

Huh?

We opened another Orange Glo and it was even better than the first one. I served it on my son’s birthday for kids 9-12 years of age. They definitely never saw orange watermelon before and were extremely suspicious about it. Couple of kids refused even to try. :grin:

I hope they were enlightened! Great job!

You’re more generous than I. On the one hand, I want to have friends over to share the delight of these melons, properly chilled of course. On the other hand, I want to eat the whole thing by myself, with no one else around, savoring every single bite.


#885

Which melon variety is in the second photo, the redder one?


#886

Well, that’s cause we know that red watermelon is an excellent source of lycopene so eating red watermelon is better for you than yellow watermelon.
Eat your veggies and no snacks before dinner.

Cityman, I think a woven electric fence would keep out the coyotes. It hasn’t kept out all the rabbits, but has worked on the larger animals for me.


#888

You’d think the coyotes would eat the rabbits!


#889

Tender sweet orange. The kids favorite so far

#891

Congrats! It’s like being a kid again!


#892

I wish I lived at your house during watermelon season!


#893

I do too. I can’t keep up with the weeds alone.


#894

A big Charleston Grey today. Maybe 35 lbs


#895

That’s a very rotten watermelon. Too bad you didn’t pick it sooner.


#896

No ray rose that was a fine watermelon. The picture is a little off with the flash it was outside in the evening.


#897

Hoping this baby will ripen before frost


#898

Took most of the watermelons that are left out of the garden, not my best year for melons but am satisfied with flavor.


#899

Very nice

We are eating our third Orange Glo watermelon, it is very good. There are three more watermelons which were set at the end of August, l am not sure if they will be able to ripen. One single Orange Glo plant have 6 large watermelons, The other varieties are not so productive.
