I set up overhead irrigation today, that should help once things get hot and start wilting. I noticed spider mites on a couple of my giant melons. I think they are on the plants when they come out of the greenhouse and that gives them a head start. Mites need to be controlled or you can forget about growing a nice melon. Lastly I threw in another AG in the garden last week. It is very small and hasn't even started running yet. Probably has 4 or 5 leaves. I am in no hurry, if their are any weigh offs this year in the Northeast it looks like they will all be in late September and October. I still have lots of time.. The newly transplanted Atlantic Giant is from my 1,201 seed from last year.
