Watermelon Harvest 2011

The watermelon harvest was disappointing this year will three melons picked and maybe another two that will be harvest in the next few weeks.  A total of 47.6 pounds of watermelon was picked which consisted of two Charleston Gray melons and one unidentified green striped melon with almost jet-black seeds.

Over 40 immature or rotting melons were picked and thrown away.  I did not do enough to control weeds this season and the lack of rain during the growing season seemed to contribute to the bad harvest this year.

The watermelon shown that has been sliced is delicious.  It is quite sweet.
