After numerous years of unsuccessful watermelon growing, this year has turned out to be a bumper crop in our garden. Well, actually four melons, but that's a lot more than zero. This past weekend I decided to pick one of the melons. I wasn't really sure how to tell if they were ready or not, but I really wanted to try one. So logically I just picked the one that started forming first. I figured it would be the closest to ripe, and would want to wast time actually finding out how to determine ripeness.
I brought it inside and cut it open. Fortunately, it is ripe and pretty tasty. It made a great afternoon snack.
