How Do You Like My Melons?

How Do You Like My Melons?
A mannequin holding down the fort at John Brown Melons. I purchased a nice cantaloupe that day. Believe it or not, when I purchased the cantaloupe, there were no actual humans working at this stand. There was a box where you put your money in for whatever you bought and it was on the "honor system." It must work there, for this place has been in business for as long as I can remember.
