I like gardening. I like watching leaves turn green. I like watching flowers bloom. I like watching the songbirds as they visit the feeders or the bird baths. I even like watching the squirrels and rabbits as they explore our little patch of green. But most of all, I like growing edibles.
This year, I expanded the garden and grew several new things that I have never grown before. One of those things was watermelon.
Yesterday, our lone little watermelon fell off the vine. It’s rind is a lovely deep green colour and it looks absolutely perfectly watermelony… except for its size.
Isn’t that just the tiniest, cutest little melon you’ve ever seen?
Given its diminutive stature, I was positive that it would not be anywhere near ripe. I cut it open at the kids’ urging, and to my great surprise, it was a beautiful pink inside.
And it was a very sweet little mouthful.
