My watermelon is growing!

For weeks I have been watching the little yellow flowers hoping they would turn into something that even remotely resembles a watermelon. Nothing, nothing then more nothing. Finally, yesterday: pay dirt.

It Looks Like a Watermelon

It’s just a bit smaller. About an inch tall. Maybe an inch and a half. But, it clearly looks like a real watermelon. Here is a picture that can help you better get a feel for the size of these little watermelons

82 Days to Harvest?

The melons have been in the ground for nearly 60 days. Does that really mean I’ll have watermelon in another 22 days?
