Giant Watermelon

July Vernon harvested this 63-pound Watermelon out of his family garden! The Vernon kids applied for a seed grant through 4-H last spring and received giant watermelon and giant pumpkin seeds.

They planned to enter the giants in the County Fair, but it was cancelled due to the pandemic. Watch for a picture of their giant pumpkin! July is the son of Jake and LaNell Vernon. (Photo provided)
