Va. Growers Say Melon Crops Look Good Despite Rain

Posted:

FARMVILLE, Va. (AP)- Virginia growers say their melon crops are doing well, despite a large amount of rainfall.

Bobby Vaughan grows canteloupes, canary melons and water melons in Virginia Beach. He says his melons are looking good.

While insects are a problem, Vaughan says they haven't been bad.

Cumberland County grower Rob French says he had to plant late. But this year's crop is good, considering the rain.
