Today is pretty cold. It's supposed to get really cold tonight and stay that way for awhile. From everything I've heard watermelon are a fan of hot weather. I wasn't convinced that our little fellow was totally ripe, I however couldn't wait any longer and the cold snap was the last straw.
Even though I planted two seeds, technically put down one bag of dirt (which was intended for the carrots I'd originally planted in the ground but that the rabbits ate), grew two plants and only got one watermelon I'd totally do it all over again. Seeing this beautiful fruit grow in our very own backyard from that one little seed, well as I've said several times before, it's just miraculous/ awe inspiring. This little fellow, our first ever watermelon that we grew, as I'm sure you can imagine was the sweetest, juiciest, most delicious watermelon I've ever had the privilege to enjoy.
Gardening is SUCH fun!
