It’s a real bumper crop

THERE WAS NO shortage of watermelons in the Brush Country and, perhaps, no one was more surprised than Clyde Camp- bell, left. He went away for a few days at the end of the growing season. When he returned, the vines had died back, revealing a boatload of melons. He took a few of them to Southern States last week to have them weighed. The heaviest came in at 57 pounds. Clyde and his brother, Tom, right, stopped by The Pocahontas Times and learned that some of the staff had visited the melon patch a few weeks ago, and deemed the melons to be “sweet!” S.
