This was a good year for Fredricksburg Peaches. Actually, it was a good year for just about every Texas Grown produce I have put in my mouth.
Everything seemed sweeter this year. The rain is so much better for everything over irrigation.
I skimmed through the thread, I didn't see any mention of frozen watermelon.. I tried it once, and it turned out great for these 100+ degree days.
Throw some toothpicks in the cubes and salt em when you eat em. If ya have the freezer space, it's a good way to make a sweet one last.
Also, if you have a section of yard that you can dig in, my Grandmother used to save watermelons from October through December by digging a deep hole,
filling it with straw and stacking two or so in the hole with plenty of straw around them, then backfill with dirt on top of that. She swears up and
down they would last months like that. Haven't tried it myself, as West Texas is a bit rocky.
