I am so with you on this one... with the price of food going up with the fuel prices... I couldn't resist buying 4 watermelon plants for $1.99 at a local nursery... I figured even if I get 1 or 2 out of those... I am ahead of the game

This is my first year to grow watermelons too. I've got one that looks like it's just about ready to pick. I think I'll cut it today and put it in the fridge while I have the room to do so. I hope mine is as good as yours.

I'm trying, I'm trying, but I don't think we have enough sun and I don't know of any SHADE vegetables!! My daughter (age 17) bought a pepper plant or two at HD and peppers are just falling off her plant now.

I think it is great that the country is returning to vegetable gardening. It is good for the body and the soul. I like to grow vegetables and flowers and fruit and herbs. Nothing tastes as good as home grown. Thanks for putting encouragement out there for the rest of the gardeners on DG.
