I love watermelons and just cannot find organic ones.
So we decided to grow our own.
Watermelons need sandy soil and plenty of water.
Watermelons on the way.
Almost ready for harvest. So far, no loss to insects and disease due to our sprays of Teh Qi and herbs.
Our first watermelon
Beautiful color and juicy; shared by Alternative Mom and her family with us.
Next, watermelon on raised beds:
If successful, we will go commercial as the market have very little and inconsistent supply of organic watermelons.
