At our last meeting Tuesday night, we discussed our garden’s progress and compared our produce stories with each other. Wayne, the Laurel Co. coordinator discussed high tunnels, fall gardens, and cover crops. Everyone turned in their produce sheets and discussed any problems or concerns that they have been having.
We also were treated with a 28 pound watermelon that Ricky, one of our participants brought to share, it was a Florida Giant variety.
Herman, one of the members told us of a old time method to tell if a watermelon is ripe and proceeded to show us.
