Moon and stars shined this summer in our garden. Big juicy watermelons, with thin skin and alot of fruit! My biggest melon was 28lbs and my smallest was 20lbs. The originally seed comes from the Peter Henderson seed company of New York in 1926. Gardeners stopped growing it for decades and it was reintroduced in 1981 by Merle Van Doren of Macon, Missouri. Merle shared it with the seed savers exchange .
My good friend Janice Brant from Tyendenaga shared the original seeds with me.
In 2019 I was happy to visit the Kenhteke seed sanctuary in Tyendenaga, and Janice shared alot of seed knowledge and stories. Nia:wen Kowa Janice.
