Stolen Mellon

Postby Eugene » Tue Aug 05, 2008 2:17 pm

Somebody stole one of my mellons, Honey Dew type, from my back yard.

It wasn't even ripe. Darn kids.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Now that the statute of limitations has long expired. Used to steal watermellons in the fall when I was a kid. I/we always waited until they were ripe and on a cool to very cold night.

Day time temperature is 100 degrees and cools off to 85 after midnight. Nothing like a fresh, unripe, hot mellon.

There is one more mellon in the patch. Guard duty tonight and every night until the mellon is ripe and I pick it or I catch the culprit. :lol:

Yep, I have been known to "borrow" a few melons myself. Also, a few peanuts from time to time.

Am I really posting this? :twisted: :evil:

Sonny,
Not to worry. I have 15 acres of peanuts on the property. Now, if you have honeydew melons, that is another worry.

I'll bet your peanuts out yield mine!!!!-----We really don't have proper soil conditions/climate here for them, but 2 years ago they did decent!----I think our season is a little short for them here too!!
I can't grow honeydews for some reason!!----Minnesota midjets and Sugar Babys are about it for us, some times an odd variety will make a few, but not on a consistent basis!!
15 Acres??---WOW!!! -----Can you post some pics of them? What varieties do you plant? thanks; sonny

I will post some pics, Sonny. I actually rent the land to a farmer that plants the peanuts, so I do not know what variety they plant. If I bump into him, I will find out. We had lots of rain so far this season, so the plants are beautiful. Should be a good crop. I'll get pics tomorrow.

Roy sure looks like a lot of peanuts. I love peanuts my wife buys me a can at least once a month and they don't last long. :) :)
Now for watermelons I can take them or leave them. I planted eight hills for Betty (she loves them). I planted sugar babies, they grow very small or at least they do here about twice the size of a softball. We picked one yesterday and it was fair but Betty saud it was great.
