Mega watermelon tops 117 pounds

Layla Polk, kindergartener at Montague ISD, sits atop a mega-watermelon grown by her grandfather Raymond Polk, Bowie. The 117 pound watermelon was grown on the Gary Prater property in rural Stoneburg. Polk had a record crop of mega-melons he was excited to share. He even dropped off a few of the smaller versions off for the grateful Bowie News staff. News photo by Eric Viccaro.
