Couple awed by tenacity of a single watermelon vine

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Skip “I had never seen a single watermelon vine grow and spread like that.”The Andersons said, for sure, that no miracle growing product was applied.“We didn’t need it,” Becky said, laughing. “It was growing on its own.”But according to what Mr. Google says about the average length for bush types of watermelons, a vine of about one foot grows out and large lobed leaves begin to form. A runner will continue to grow until it reaches about 12 feet in length.But the single watermelon vine in the 500 block of 2nd Avenue has grown until it has engulfed much of the Anderson’s backyard lawn. And, it still on the grow.It seems to double its growth during the day and throughout the night.“Every day in grows more and more,” Pat said. “It’s has started to climb. It has trailed up to the birdhouse and is circling it. The vine is growing into the shrubs and is going toward the outside wall of the house. We have no idea when it will stop growing.”The single watermelon vine seems to have a mind of its own. And, it appears that, perhaps, their house could be vine covered before summer’s end. Pat said the vines will begin to die down at some point. At that time, he will be able to pull the fruits of the vine’s harvest.“Right now, I can’t see all the watermelons,” he said. “They are small and are well-hidden by the leaves. I don’t know what kind of melons they are but they appear to be a seedless variety.”The Andersons have attempted to count the melons but the broad coverage of leave keeps them at bay.“There could be 18 to 24 or a lot more,” Pat said. “We’ll have to wait to know exactly how many melons this one watermelon vine has produced. It will be interesting to know.”Until the vine gives way to Mother Nature, Pat and Becky Anderson will just sit on their covered porch and watch hummingbirds feed and the watermelon vine grow. By Jaine Treadwell “I can’t explain it,” Pat said with a smile and a shake of his head. “It all started with this one little watermelon plant in this one container with dripping water.”“It,” to which Anderson referred, is a single watermelon vine that has grown, just as Jack’s beanstalk, into an enormous vine and hasn’t stopped growing.“The vine started to run a little and then a little more and then it began to spread,” Pat said. “Soon, it covered a pretty good space on the back lawn and then a larger space and then an even bigger space.

However, Pat takes little-to-no credit because all he did was offer a steady stream of water to a single watermelon plant with a vine that grew and grew and grew and keeps on growing.

Warm water hockey

first_img Old design gets new wind behind its sails – May 22, 2013 Latest Posts Lobster traps to be moved for survey – May 17, 2013 MDI sailors finish in middle of pack – May 17, 2013 Underwater hockey players move in on the puck during a recent game at the MDI YMCA in Bar Harbor. Games are held on Thursday evenings throughout the winter.BAR HARBOR —One night a week, a small group of people change into their bathing suits, strap into snorkels and flippers, and slip beneath the surface of the swimming pool to play hockey, not a pair of skates or a mouthguard in sight.{youtube}ZHurFHBbXLA{/youtube}Local diver Ed Monat, who organizes the sessions, calls the game “underwater hockey.” The British, who invented it and developed it into an international competition, call it “octopush.”Beyond a weighted puck and short sticks to push it along, there is little in common with the version of hockey most people recognize. The goals are strips of rope kept at the bottom of the pool with lead weights. The object is to score by pushing the puck beneath the rope.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textMr. Monat, a master diver, has been periodically organizing underwater hockey since the early ‘90s. On Mr. Horton’s first night the turnout was the “the best we have had in quite a while,” Mr. Monat said. Participants ranged in age from around 10 years old to more than 40.Underwater, the action begins with the two teams at opposite ends of the shallow section, the puck positioned between them. On a count of three, the teams rush towards the puck and each other. When they meet below the surface of the pool, the water boils, resembling a scene from the classic movie “Jaws.”The rules for underwater hockey are as strict as any other sport. The British Octopush Association defines most of the formal guidelines. Those include coded signals used by the referees, age brackets, how much the pool bottom can slant, penalties, and procedures for appealing a referee’s call.The Mount Desert Island incarnation of underwater hockey, however, does not strictly adhere to these rules. “In an ideal world I would love to do it [competitively],” said Mr. Monat. “But we play just for fun,” making rules as they best fit the group that comes to play.For more sports news, pick up a copy of the Mount Desert Islander.center_img Bio Latest posts by Blake Davis (see all) Blake DavisReporter at Mount Desert IslanderFormer Islander reporter Blake Davis covered sports and maritime events.

Rohr Happy with Array of Strikers at Disposal

first_imgSuper Eagles Head Coach,  Gernot Rohr is happy with his striking options available for him as his team is gradually taking shape towards the African Cup of Nations finals in Egypt.The German tactician masterminded the Super Eagles’ 1-0 win over Egypt in an international friendly match which was played at Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba to rap up five-day football fiesta at the stadium in which Nigeria came top in all the three matches including the U-23 National team who trounced Libya  to hit final qualification tournament to the next Olympic football tournament in Japan.Lanky striker Paul Onuachu scored with a thunderous shot under one minute to give Nigeria her first win over Egypt after over a decade.“We have other profiles for the striker position, we now have this tall guy from Denmark. He did very well but he has to improve still,” Rohr said.“We had five changes in the team, the goalkeepers came in and we finished with two local players that made their debuts.The 65-year-old trainer is happy with how his players performed during the FIFA international break.“It will be good for them, for their confidence and for the careers of the players,” he added.“I am happy about it also because our 23 players did very well for the past ten days in Asaba.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Gernot Rohrlast_img read more

F. expresses its deep regret at the passing of Danilo, the son of Brazilian football legend @officialcafu,” the LaLiga club wrote.“The club wishes to convey its condolences to Cafu and his family and shares in his grief in these difficult moments.” As well as Danilo, Cafu had two further children whom he posed earlier this year for a picture shared on social media.
