This has been a discouraging year gardening. First of all, the deer keep eating a substantial amount of my produce; after they initially ate several of the plants down to stubs. Other than that, my husband kindly installed soaker hoses for me so I wouldn't have to hand water, but I think I drowned my melons; well, at least allowed them to get a fungus from too much water. So, last count I had 20 some watermelons and 40 some cantaloupes growing, but the ones that do make it in the house are rather bland - not the good melons we grew last year!
Here's the ones I brought in today; the chickens get the deer sampled ones.
