Melons
« on: June 08, 2013, 08:27:31 PM »
After last year's recalls and health issues, are they going to let the farmers grow watermelons and cantaloupes this year?

I really miss Gibson, Posey, and Know County melons.

Sincerely,

Yes, there is a lot of melon fields planted already.  Remember to wash your fruit.

It wouldn't be summer, without Southern Indiana melons!

After the Samonilla outbreak last year, can the growers ship the melons, or do you have to eat them within the county?

Apparently, the melon season was without incident as to tainted fruit.

Has that family come out of it ok?
