Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

In a Tight Place

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

This is why you should check your garden every day.  (Bad gardener, bad gardener!)

I turned my back for a couple of days while I was busy with something else and one of my Sugar Baby watermelons got itself stuck between the tines of the goat panel that they're growing on.  Now I can't get it out!

This one just happened to be growing on the part of the panel where the tines are really close together.  I briefly thought about it cutting the tine, but I've got a ton of watermelons growing, so I decided to wait and see what happens with this one.  Do you think it will keep trying to grow around it?  I guess I'm going to have to cut it off there if it ever ripens.

I checked the other melons and they're in no danger of getting in this same predicament.

Weird, huh?  Keep an eye on those veggies, guys and gals....

  1. It reminded me of those square watermelons they grow. Let it continue, you might have a very interestingly shaped watermelon soon!
