Market gardeners amaze me with their ability to grow melons. This is the first year I’ve grown a watermelon to eating size. I only got one off the plant–but hey, it tasted good. I harvested it a hair early because of the critter situation in my yard, but it was ripe and juicy. It was a Sugar Baby melon that I bought as a seedling at Frattalone’s Ace Hardware in Shoreview. My mom and I buy plants there every year and they usually perform well.
