We’ve had a cold spring for our area, so I haven’t planted the watermelons. I plant them pretty much every year, though the fruits of my vine are somewhat fewer than other vegetable adventures. My squeeze loves them, and who can blame him? On a hot Charleston day, there’s nothing like sinking your teeth into icy cold, juicy watermelon.
When my dearest came home last night and said he’d paid $7 for a watermelon, he also wanted to know how the watermelon patch was coming in the yard. “Ummmm. Not planted yet.” He looked out at the rest of the vegetable garden, which for once looks pretty spiffy. “Need to plant watermelons” he suggested. Okay,okay. For you, two kinds.
What are you most excited for in your garden this year?
