The arrival of watermelons at Kimball Fruit Farm in Pepperell means summer is almost over.
Growing the fruit involves three months of sowing and harvesting during summer’s dog days.
“My mantra is that it’s not a job; it’s a way of life,” says Carl Hills, who runs the farm.
Watermelon is one of Kimball Fruit Farm’s smaller harvests, but one that Hills said is a joy to grow.
“There’s nothing bad about watermelon,” Hills said. “And the fun part is really right now, taking a look at them right before you pick.”
