WOW! That is a nice melon! You must have been feeding that plant water from the Tar river!

I have made about a dozen business trips to Tarboro where the company I worked for had a facility over on Anaconda road.
Isn't the soil red clay with some sand? If so, that makes it even more impressive. Do you have squash vine borer problems over there?
I was about to ask the same thing. You should see Tarboro from the air where the farms look like large sand patches. There are lots of cotton being grown there as well.
