Started a few giant lopes this weekend. This is my first attempt at lopes. Big thanks to Jeremy Lindley and Danny Vester for giving us some great seeds. The 3 on the right in the container are 53.4 Lindley and the 3 on the left are 45 Vester. The 3 pots in front are Rampart rootstock. This grafting thing is kinda neat so I might graft one of these just to see how it goes. Good luck everyone!!

Well look at that! I haven't had my old Kent dirt a full day and I'm already getting some of those purple weeds that the Kent dirt is famous for growing. Maybe it's a sign of good things to come!

45 Phillips Giant Canteloupe. This is one of the best seeds we have grown at least for the first few weeks. Maybe it will finish the way it started.

Melon plants coming along better than ours ever have. Adding all of our soil amendments today and a few plants should be hitting the ground soon. This is the first year that we started plants in waves to try to catch some later weighoff a. Good luck to everyone!

Finally got a graft to take and it is looking and growing really good. We might just have to find somewhere for "Little Lucille" to grow since all of our spots are filled.
