This is one of the watermelons I was telling you about earlier. I have never been able to grow watermelon. It obviously must be me because this watermelon grew itself. This came from an heirloom plant that we planted either last year or the year before. I honestly can't remember. Whatever year we planted, we didn't get anything from it so I decided we just couldn't grow watermelons. Michael plowed the field up in late May with the intentions of planting, but we never got that far. The watermelon grew itself from the earlier plant and now we have an abundant harvest of watermelons. The flavor is amazing. It is sweet and has a great texture. I hate mushy watermelons! I did just discover that 4 of our 5 children do NOT like watermelon. I have been dedicating a garden bed each year to grow watermelon and I didn't even KNOW my kids don't like it!!! What kind of crazy kids don't eat watermelon???!!! I guess I won't have to worry about mastering the production of watermelon around here, and I won't even have to end on a failure. After all, we have an abundant crop this year even if I didn't know they were out there!
grace and peace,
