Organic Watermelons Anyone?

I love watermelons and just cannot find organic ones.

So we decided to grow our own.












Watermelons need sandy soil and plenty of water.

Almost ready for harvest.  So far, no loss to insects and disease due to our sprays of Teh Qi and herbs.

If successful, we will go commercial as the market have very little and inconsistent supply of organic watermelons.
