|Such a great moment! Our first watermelon, 19 pounds.|
Our first watermelon was so much fun. This time of year the bugs, the weeds, the harvest, the canning, the everything can get a little overwhelming. It's a face like Q. James that makes it all such great fun.
Those big cracks in the melons are the result of too much rain at the very end of their life on the vine. Thankfully all that water didn't ruin the flavor, and the cracks didn't reach the edible part of the fruit. The one we cut was delicious! I'm so sorry, but I did not record the varieties we grew this year.
