A look inside, the one and only watermelon that grew in my garden this year!

Yes. It was delicious!

    Did you plant it’s seeds – or save some for next year? 🙂

  2. At least you got one to grow. 😉

      That’s true. I was a little concerned about it too. I had about 8 cantaloupe & they never made it. The critters got to them before I did. 😦
      Ahh well, maybe next time!

  3. Oh my! it does look delicious, you are so lucky too. Our garden grew a few cantelopes but just like Becky here the critters got to ours too. That’s why I am living and learning that next year we will try to get a few green houses up to protect some of the garden next time. It really is a waste of time to fight with mother nature for food.

      Wow! You are certainly correct when it comes to mother nature – she can be pretty tough some times! I think I’ve come to the same conclusion as you have, certainly need some kind of protection from the critters if I am going to attempt this again! 🙂

    We grew watermelons two summers ago. It bore a lot of fruits that got really big. So I picked them and found out that they were not ripe enough. When is the right time to pick watermelons?

    • Becky says:

      Oh, I wish I knew what the answer was! We just guessed, and took a chance on ours. The vine was dying out, so I didn’t think that the melon would be getting much nutrients from it, so I just decided to give it a try, and pick it!
      I’m sure there is a better way to tell when it’s ripe – I’ve heard that when you thump on them and they sound “hollow” then that means that they are ripe.
      Not sure if that’s true or not…but when I tried it on mine, that seemed to be the case, so maybe it works!
      Sorry, I’m not of too much help to you. 😦 Hope it goes better for you next time around!
