“King Kong” of the watermelons

This past Monday morning Mr. Donnie Hughes from Camp Arrowmoon Road came to the Roberson County News with his pride and joy, a 130-pound watermelon in his passenger seat of his pickup truck.

Thinking we might just like to have a picture, he was right. Mr. Donald Threadgill, passing by at the time assisted Mr. Hughes in getting the huge watermelon placed into his arms, as not to drop it, so that Dennis Phillips, the Publisher of the Robertson County News could capture the picture of a lifetime. Mr. Hughes said he planted the watermelon around March 24 the same way he always plants his garden. Some he will plant from seeds and some he uses starter plants that he grows himself.
