My brother's foray into farming.
He started with bananas and is now trying out watermelon.
Our first time seeing watermelons growing.
My brother will cease planting watermelons after this as he found that the work involved is much too intense - each flower had to be manually pollinated.
And a lot of pesticide is required for each stage of development - the moment the seed germinates, pesticides are sprayed.
However, it took only 2 months from germination to harvest. I guess he likes planting bananas more.
One interesting fact:
The flower from the yellow watermelon is used to pollinate the flower of the red watermelons. Yellow watermelons are a byproduct when red watermelons planted.
