Speaking of things that have been delayed a bit, the watermelons are a bit late here this year due to the odd weather. So this weekend I was out in the watermelon patch picking a few as they ripened. L took this picture with my phone - one of the clearer ones I have seen it take.
The melon in my arms is about 22 lbs. - a good size but enough melon to keep L and I eating for days.
Did you know that you can tell when a watermelon is ready to be picked by looking at the first curly tendril on the vine nearest the melon? When it curls and browns, the melon is ready for picking. I like that much more than the myriad of odd ways to tell when cantaloupe, muskmelons, and honeydews are ready. Just one simple visual inspection and you are set to go.
Back to getting ready for the 5K this weekend.
