well ....

   the green (and dirty) truck is loaded with ...

         65 watermelons
           3 bushel of various squash
           4  -- 1/2 bushels of apples
           3 pumpkins (pathetic)
     
           1 canopy & related stuff
           3 tables (and tablecloths)
           1 lawn chair
           1 garbage pail
           1 cash box (kinda important)
           1 library book
           1 crochet work


   so the verdict is in ...

        the melons have no leaves but the vines look pretty good -- it will be a challenge to keep the deer out of them so I think 10 days max ...

         carnivals are the only variety of squash I'll have with any quantity -- the rest are immature and nibbled on by the deer ...

         6 regular pumpkins ( $42 for seed ) so that calculates to $ 7 a pumpkin -- the rest were immature and nibbled on by deer (noticing the trend) ... I really didn't plant many --- 18 hills at max ... so .....

         so ... gonna have to let it play out and see what happens .... it could be worse --- it could have SNOWED !!!!

ps.  the house is 250 - 300 feet away from the patch with a windbreak between the two -- nothing froze at the house ....but the damn deer are nibbling in the yard !!!
