The watermelon can be grown in the backyard. '. Here are socne of its other advantages... It's compact, oc- 'cupying a space no more than Six feet wide. Comparethiswith the standard typeof watermelon vine that covers space as much as 20 feet wide. Being compact, the area around the vines is easy to cultivate. And the vines are easy to reach for dusting and spraying. • These are not midget melons, however. They weigh from 25 to 35 pounds/just the right size to go in the refrigerator. Dense foliage onthevinespro- tea the melons from sunburn'. The thick foliage also discourages weeds, an advantage thar- borne gardeners will like. Seed are now on the market for the Bush Desert King which was developed at Texas A&M. It has the disadvantage of being yellow meated, but Mohr has already succeeded in breeding a red flesh watermelon of the bush type. THUBSDAY OCT. 8th CLARK BUICK PONTIAC op.
