Ray Quillman of Garrick Road grew two big watermelons from seed this year, one 59 pounds and one 62 pounds. ‘I just planted them and let the Lord do the rest,’ he said. That took about 100 days. After having the biggest melons weighed at Southern States and photographed for the Garden Game, what does he plan to do with them? He said he thought he might give them to someone for a ‘Watermelon Fiesta.’
