A Wonderful Surprise!! 7/27/12

For the first time ever I'm growing watermelon, sugar baby watermelon to be exact! I'm growing them in a container on my deck and started them from seed. I've diligently watered the plants everyday when needed and was super happy to see blossoms on the plant a few weeks ago. As the vines began to elongate across the wood deck, I began questioning if I would get any watermelons...

Then today as I was walking on the deck I noticed something under one of the vines, the vine had moved during storms the night before. To my surprise there was a grapefruit size watermelon!! It made my day! I hadn't even seen this one growing and I've even been looking for it!
