Surprise! The First Watermelon

What a Treat it is, when the Garden Gives up a Melon

Especially the first watermelon of the season, it is oh, so  sweet.  It just was over there, hiding amongst the leaves, for ever and ever, and then yesterday it is just screaming out to me, “Here I am, come and pick me!!!”  And when I looked over there, next to the corn, there was this melon about the size of a volleyball, and it looked ripe, and passed the knock, knock test.

And is was very surprising, in light of the drought we have been having, but that sucker was just wonderful.  So it pays to toss back a few of those watermelon seeds in the spring.  They sure are delicious.
