YEAH! I have tried for several years to grow watermelons with no success. Yesterday, in addition to harvesting literally about 30 pounds of tomatoes, I went to check on my babies. There were four that were ready!!!! Hubby and I sampled some early this morning after letting it cool in the fridge over night and oh how sweet it is!!
Here's proud mama with her babies:
Here they are again:
Each one of those babies weighs a good 20 pounds! You should have seen my daughter and I struggling to carry these things to the car! It was definitely funny!
Here's the maters:
I kid you not when I say that each of those bags weighed as much as one of the watermelons! I was afraid that the plastic bag was going to break!
I'm so proud and feel so very blessed to have grown my very own watermelons! I think my Grandpa is up in Heaven smiling down on my harvest.
There are still about ten watermelons left in the garden that should be ready within the next week or two.
Now I'm going to figure out what to do with all those maters!
Until next time garden gals and guys....
Very Happy Gardening!!
