Amazing Melons!

Here are Project Roots we have an abundance of melons at the moment.  Three different types all doing amazingly well in our organic hugelkulture beds.  This is great news for those sunny days as it’s super refreshing and of course full of water.  But, water is not the only thing it’s full of, it also holds the following magic within…
