We have watermelon!

So, we waited and waited and waited for our little watermelon to get big enough to pull out. Fred and I have no idea how tell when that time is, so it was hard for us to wait!
I finally decided that it didn't look any bigger in a couple of days, we plucked it!

Then we put it in the fridge to chill. I have been so worried that after all this waiting for it, that it wouldn't taste very good.  I just cut it open, and it is GREAT! so SWEET!

I am thinking that by the way it looks inside, it probably could have done with a few more days on the vine. But it tastes pretty good in spite. I am so excited!!

We still have about 6 on the vines, not sure if they will make it, but they are getting bigger! I guess I must have planted them too late. But I read somewhere that the hotter the climate, the later to plant them. Oh well, Next summer we'll try earlier and see if was can have some for Labor Day!
