Early Melon Harvest

Amish family harvesting melons.
Early hot weather has affected local melon crops. We are getting good melons to market lately. I was out in the Jamesport countryside yesterday and took some pictures of local farmers harvesting melons.

I bought some melons last week at the Clear Creek Produce Stand. They were great! I almost managed to eat one whole cantaloupe on my own. Yum. 

Clear Creek Produce
I  made a few trips this past week to the Clear Creek Produce Stand, just south of Jamesport off  Hwy 190. I enjoyed talking to the kids there and bought some good produce. The stand is one of those old fashioned honor system places. You take what you want and leave your money in a jar. How cool is that?
