Melon patch is in the ground!

We got the melon patch in the ground today.    Eight rows of about 150 feet.... makes about 1200 melon plants with one foot spacing. That should be enough to keep the pigs in juicy heirloom sweetness for a while! (Anyone wanna try melon finished bacon and chops???)

Unfortunately it took a while more than expected... the weeds had sprouted and with the tractor tiller down for repair.... we ended up tilling the entire spot with the old trusty hand tiller.

The drip lines worked out well this time though... from start to finish, including turning the water, was only about 2 hours. Love that Hoss seeder!

Tomorrow.... pumkins, squash, zuchinni, and okra go in!
