This is a close up of one of my plants. Long and skinny for easy culling. It is my D1 on a 'Tetsukabuto' rootstock. I still don't have a melon set on this yet. The bees need to get cracking. No time here to pollinate. My plants get very little of my time. I have a lot on my plate but I try to manage the best plants I can with minimal effort. These plants are big and I think if I get one to set they will fly out of the gates. It has been a weird spring, It hasn't been particularily warm and at night it has been cooling off nicely. I have been able to turn off the A/C at night and just have a fan blowing in cool air into the house. The melons don't seem to mind and are growing like crazy. These plants survived a frost early in the season that hit my AG pretty hard. I have been battling spider mites on them and I hope that they are under control now that we are in a very humid and wet weather pattern with heavy thundershowers happening very frequently. June was dry and sunny.
