Watermelons! I can't wait for mine. I'm trying my hardest not to be impatient, but I saw one flow bud on the small vine today and I was over joyed! We've been having this unbelievable heat wave here in Atlanta so I've had to keep mine watered more often. How often do you water yours? Great vid!
Pretty dog! Wimpy pumpkin! Some of my tomato plants have weird leaves, too. I just hope we can keep them all producing!
Looks like you've done a good job pruning your tomatoes. Mine need it desperately. Shoot, I need more time in my garden. Thanks for sharing what watermelon and the like look like once they're on a trellis. Mine are nowhere near needing it yet. Soon I hope.
What a great idea, and a great video. I felt like I was really there looking at your melons. THANKS for sharingRosey
Those watermelons are beautiful! You're having great success this year, I'm happy for you.
It's become apart of my day now to water my plants, have my tea and watch your videos. My boyfriend makes fun of me for it but I do love the look of your garden.Good work!
Those watermelons though look fabulous. Are they the really big ones? I can't even grow watermelons here. We just don't get warm enough for long enough. It can be done, but it really isn't worth the effort unless you have a hoop house. Sadly cantaloupe are the same. I've grown them, but they just don't produce well enough here.
Kalena Michele - I know the feeling - it's been hot here, too! My melon box is 12" deep, so I water every 3 days.Granny - wimpy? Ha! I really don't think my tomato harvest will be too good.Sinfonian - I've pinched most of the suckers on the tomato plants.Rosey - You're quite welcome! The little melons are even bigger, now! Yay!Peel - Thanks! Most things are doing well, but some not so good.waters_deep - that's funny....I bet your BF is like "you gonna watch the redneck video for the day?" Ha!Daphne - no, those melons only get 20-25 lbs. I don't have any fruit set on the big'uns.
It's exciting to see the watermelons already and the tomatoes are huge. I think they are taking after jack and the bean stock!
Dan - the tomatoes sure are getting big, but i'm ready for them to ripen! The watermelons have already outgrown the 5 ft trellis, thanks to the very warm days of late.
Those tomatoes look like a rainforest of 'maters. Thanks for the video!
Hi EG! It's Toni in Wyoming! I really enjoy your videos!Wow those tomatoes look tall! I was trying to figure out how you have them supported... Do you have 2 cages put together?I'm trying watermelon and cantalope this year! My cantalope vines aren't doing so well... but the watermelon are just starting to have some growth.I was impressed with how good Jude listens to you!
The watermelons look great. I grow smaller cantaloupe-type melons, the kind that "slip" from the stem when ripe. Someone asked once why I don't put them on a trellis, and my mind could only envision splattered ripe melons all over the ground. So great that watermelons hang on tight!I am curious about your sweet potatoes. Have you grown them in containers before, and if so, what kind are they? I gave a slip of Beauregard to a friend last year; she planted it in a container, and the potatoes cracked open the container! I am wondering whether another variety might be a little less exuberant...Thanks for the videos!-Amy, NW of Atlanta
