Farm Happenings for August 17, 2020

Posted on August 14th, 2020 by Val Tachenko

Valerie was out watering and found this little watermelon finally growing! It'll be awhile before it's ready to harvest, but it's exciting to see it doing so well! Watermelons are difficult to grow, because the conditions have to be just right for a successful watermelon crop. We source our watermelons from Valerie's sister and brother in law - S.R. Walker Watermelons. And if they don't have enough to fill our order, we also source our watermelons from Walchli. Both farms are in Hermiston, Oregon. Have you ever heard of Hermiston Melons? Hermiston, Oregon has built a reputation of having the best tasting melons and we agree, which is why we drive at least once a week to stock up. Fun fact, Valerie doesn't care for watermelon but really enjoys a good cantaloupe. We can probably all agree that there's something pretty satisfying about biting into a melon on a hot summer day, no matter what kind of melon you like to sink your teeth into! Stay safe and stay hydrated! Thanks again for supporting our family farm!
