but with our first autumnal storm about to hit hard tonight, it's only fitting i revisit the summer goodness we cracked into about three weeks ago, right?
mmmm, watermelon. we ate a LOT of watermelon this year, but this one was special--we grew it ourselves. overall, our garden had another generally crappy year (i'm starting to think the common denominator here is not enough effort on the part of the gardeners) but the two watermelon plants we put in actually did very well.
anyway, we've got 2 more watermelons just like this one sitting ripe & ready on the vine. perhaps tomorrow will be the perfect time to do a bit of harvesting... if we can brave the 60 mph winds they're predicting!
