    My bell peppers just never did anything this year. Jalapenos, bannanas, and serranos are all producing some. Tomatos are finally producing decently. Sure gonna do them different next year

    Thanks Meer. Seems like I'm wasting my time sometimes. But what turns out makes it worth it. I just get greedy sometimes and want everything to come in. Doubt we'd have time to put it all up if it did.

    Last watermelon from the garden this year, going to cut it later tonight. Hope it's a good one.

    This was a bad year for melons and loupes...

    Everyone of mine have had holes stomped in them by deer. No melons for me this year I'm afraid.

    A man I used to lease a hayfield from on his first try had a great crop of watermelons (Mr. W). The week they needed to be pulled he got called away on business.

    I was selling at 3 different farmers markets that year. A couple of brothers who were neighbors of Mr. W had a load of watermelons at the market one Saturday. They are known thieves and lowlifes. I knew they didn’t grow those melons and I asked about them. They told me a man in another town gave them a small patch.

    A few days later I was over checking to see if the hay was ready to cut. Mr. W was there and asked for my help. He wanted to know if coyotes drag melons into the woods…

    See, all his melons were missing. I told him what I suspected happened to his melons! Those two brothers and their daddy are scum. They have been thieves, liars and cheats their whole lives…

    Mr. W is a very kind and generous man, if they had asked he would have given them the melons… but thieves do what thieves do! :mad:

    @Bacpacker electric fence is the only thing that will keep them out of melon patch. mount it about 6 inches high, hidden among the leaves...
