    Yeah, pretty much the same thing. We call em deer food. Fuckers seem to know when it's time to pick and they mow em down 2 days before we get to them.

    Washington Parish has the best watermelons anywhere. People come from all over to get them. If you want THE Washington Parish watermelon, you want a John Gallaspy watermelon. He is one of the 5 of us that manage our garden.

    This is a short, really great read on Mr. John.

    In Bunkie, when we sell melons we put a sign saying, " Sugar Town," no matter whose garden they came out of.

    If you tasted one of Mr. John's, you would understand. The guy has been growing melons for 70 years.
