Watermelon Update

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

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.

Nothing like Smitty's Roadside watermelons
