A few weeks ago I posted that some watermelons had sprouted in the garden from last years transplants. Well the vines have taken off and are running all over the place. Here are a few pictures of where they are.
Here is the vine running in all directions.
Here is my best looking melon so far, about the size of a softball.
Here is the first melon that was set, I think I may have damaged the vine when I was laying fresh pine straw around the plant. Yummy.
Now I wish I could say that I grew this monster, but this is what I hope to grow. This was purchased from a local road side vegetable seller. This is a seedless variety that is so delicious. My favorite time to eat watermelon is after I have cut the grass. Instead of quenching my thirst with water, I like to eat ice cold watermelon from the fridge.
