It's worth the work

With Spring not too far off in the distance, I'm really itching to get the garden going. My 12-year-old has enjoyed planting for a few years. He usually has his own section at Grandpa's house where he has room to grow melons and pumpkins and things that need lots of room to spread out. A couple of those years he has grown watermelons. For some reason, he seems to only get a handful of fruit out of a large amount of seeds. He might plant three dozen seeds and only get three melons. But, those three that survive are big and sweet. Sometimes it seems like way too much work for such a small yield of crop. But, once you take a bit, you know it was all worth it. :)
