First Watermelon of the Season

Sunday night Steve and I picked from our garden, our first watermelon of the season.

We each took home half a melon but we’d better eat up quickly as our watermelons are doing really well this year so we should be picking another one very soon.

  1. :) Thats one big melon! Your slushie looks deeeelish!

  2. Oh my, now THAT is a watermelon. I've been meaning to ask about your garden. Aside from the long beans, you haven't mentioned it as much as last summer. How is it doing?
