here are some of the watermelon kinds that made it to maturity and to the table to become food for hungry folks!

I think there were several other kinds out there also, but Virginia caught these sneeking out and got proof that were for real! thanks; sonny

We have since harvested most of the spuds, all of the sweet corn, eggplants just starting, maters were not much this year for the third year in a row!---we had turnips, the rabi things and a few other odds and ends! ---as bad as the weather was we still did manage to save some of the garden by carrying a lot of water that I hauled in from town on the big tanker! thanks; sonny

I'm jealous Sonny.... but my northern neighbor loaded me up with goodies from their garden!

Gotta love harvest time :D .

The sweet onions have been harvested and cured for storage---not as big as normal, but very nice clean tasty flavor, so we lucked out on them !
The grapes are for fresh eating,--as they are the kind that you see in the grocery stores, cept these are made to produce smaller berry size but same great sweet flavor!
The bowl of soup is a combo of everything that I could find ready for harvest that day in the gardens!---very tasty too,!
we were fortunate to have been blessed with a nice harvest despite the hot/dry weather!---For the last week we have gotten about 3 to 4 inches of rain, but ground still very dry down deep! thanks; sonny
