TERRELL COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

The threat of another freeze has some farmers holding off on planting their watermelons.

Mark Daniels, the Owner of Mark's melon patch in Terrell County says his field will remain bare till after Wednesday, when the freeze is predicted to strike.

He says luckily its been dry, which has allowed farmers to prep the fields for planting.

"Right now they are looking good in the green house but you don't want to put them out there when its supposed to be like 32 degrees Wednesday morning. You don't want to sacrifice your crop over one night so we gonna wait those one or two nights of cold weather and hopefully get them going good," says Owner Mark Daniel.

He says their waiting to see if the corn, which is already in the field, which survive this week's cold spell.
