The story goes, (true story) that I had a Sun Jewel melon that I had started from seed way back in late Feb-early March. When the threat of frost was gone I took this precious little melon vine out to the garden to plant. Well it didn't like it. It yellowed and looked all but dead. Everyday I went out to look at everything growing and I contemplated pulling it up but I kept figuring I would give it another day.
Well, something changed. All of a sudden this plant started to green. Not only was it getting green, but flowering and growing. A week goes by and I have melons. Tiny little melons growing off of the vine. Amazing. To see this plant a month ago and then today is quite a little miracle that God, not Miracle Grow, could have done. (By the way, I don't use the stuff! Just 30 wt ball bearings, it's all about ball bearings these days!) Sad Fletch reference!(See clip below)
