Oh my! Melons!

Updated: Aug 3, 2020

Harvested the first watermelon for breakfast today.

It is super juicy, making a distinct pop sound at the first cut, cells filled to almost bursting with that lovely monsoon rain last week.

I was worried my swelling Baby Sweets would burst like the splitting tomatoes with all the moisture. Last week, I had just decided to stop watering them to enhance the sweetness (as per some online research into growing these babies) and then they got 5 inches of sky watering in half an hour on Sunday.

There are dozens of swelling melons hiding under the beautiful vines.

My first attempt ever at growing watermelons and I am smitten.

Already planning a trellis structure for them next year.
