grass have overgrown our “melon patch” a bit. This makes finding the

what seemed to be coming along nicely. Of course, on the other end they

Today, there was nearly a five gallon bucket picked.
Some of the corn has begun to silk out. I figure around the end of
August we should have a fair amount of corn to get off. Wife’s dad is
