While I was out I stopped at the plant shop and decided to pick up a watermelon and cantaloupe plant. I had planted seed but they promptly came up and went kaput!! I guess it was just too much rain at just the wrong time and I would suppose the hail didn't help any either. Anyway, I'll try them again!!
They grow very tall and are quite a specimen to behold in the herb garden. The bronze coloring is magnificent!
