ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN)—At the Enterprise Farmer’s market, watermelons were selling like hot cakes.
Truck farmers say July 4th is the “biggest day” of the year for the south’s traditional summer dessert.
Watermelon lovers’ would thump, knock, and look for yellowing on the skin.
These are various ways folks try and determine which melon to purchase.
For one Brantley couple out of Crenshaw County, there’s nothing like a slice of cold melon on a hot day.
With a fair amount of rain coupled with “dry weather”, this year’s crop in the tri-state is considered “good”.
Once July 4th is over, the price for watermelons often drops due to “supply and demand”.
Several years ago, Tom T. Hall had a hit song entitled “Old Dogs, Children, and Watermelon Wine”.
