We can grow watermelon up north cold short season. I did pretty good with sugar baby but best melons I've ever had few yrs running is blacktail mountain developed by Sand Hill Preservation Center. I didn't get them from there, have bought chickens from him just never seeds. Got them from Baker Creek. Tons of small melons. This yr all my plants died, had melons but died. Had a super infestation of cucumber beatles this yr, they really liked them and my pumpkins loaded up in the flowers. Neem oil didn't save the watermelons but my pumpkins are doing great.

I just cut up a watermelon and am doing some for the first time!! can't wait
Did you put it in yet?

It takes forever, but it’s so worth it. My husband doesn’t get the same flavor I do. I think his taste buds are junk 😂 it’s so darn sweet like candy. One small bite and I’m fully satisfied of my sweet craving!

Has anyone noticed online companies are becoming quite generous if your orders are late?

My dehydrator still isn’t here so I messaged Walmart. They say it’ll come and they’re sending me a free gift once I get it. No clue what the free gift is but I’ll take a gadget or something. I’m not too worried since I borrowed my friends.

The dehydrator was supposed to be delivered last Thursday.

I think the majority of Americans' taste buds are nearly dead. Give them sugar, fat and salt and they're happy.

I just don't get sweet cravings any more.

watermelon went in last night at 11:30. can't wait! 18-24 hrs
I did mine for 18. Then I let it cool and it became like a breakable candy. Like jolly ranchers were melted and made into flat pieces.

I sent some to my husbands work so his healthy coworker can try some. I also sent some tomato chips with oregano.
