I've been a bad blogger, but I do have something to show for it!

I know I have been really bad at blogging, but I've been busy -- really! And I do have something to show for it:

Ali Baba Watermelon! That's Jonah's foot next to it for comparison.
This is delicious! We got 4 big ones this year -- one I picked before it was quite mature -- it was light pink inside with white seeds but still good -- my nieces, nephew and son loved it anyway. One we gave away today, one is still growing, and the other one is this -- so yummy!
I cannot wait to weigh the one still in the garden, it is HUGE!

We have 2 little ones growing too, but I don't think there is enough frost and cold-free time left for them to make it to maturity. If I have the space, I will definitely grow this again next year.

And seriously, the seeds are half the fun -- we were cracking Jonah up today as we practiced spitting them across the yard. We're not very good at this skill...yet.

Please tell me I am missing a decimal point and that the watermelon weighs twenty-one pounds not two hundred and ten!!!
