Nature’s Bounty

20 09 2009


I had a watermelon seed that I started in a tiny paper cup. As soon as it had a couple leaves on it, the “where to plant it” discussion ensued. We only had space in the backyard in they wayyyy back, near the alley. But we were worried about things like bum pee and old car oil tainting the seedling. Eeeew, alley melon. We ended up planting it in the front yard and it went nutso! I was worried it was going to strangle us in our sleep. Even our neighbors were making comments.

This was our first melon. Alas, we picked it a little too soon, but it’s still very exciting.
