Local farmer Jenner Ridgeway submitted this photograph of workers planting watermelons between Trenton and Bell on Monday. According to Ridgeway, the workers can plant 50 acres of watermelons a day while seated on planters attached to a tractor. Marvin Weaver, Gilchrist County extension agent, gave a conservative estimate that over 2,000 acres of watermelons will be planted in Gilchrist County this year.
