We're lucky to have a lot of supportive growers too who turned up for the weigh in as well as a terrific Ag Commissioner (Steve Troxler) who is interested in growers and what we do. Wish I could have been there. Congratulations again Danny on a terrific cantaloupe.

Thats even better you grew it on your own seed. You do have a great group of friends up there. I told Todd last night I havent grown a lope since 2014. The last two years in a row I lost the biggest lopes I had grown and got frustrated. Its quite an accomplishment to make it to the finish line with one that big. I know you worked for it. I believe you and Llyod got me interested again.
