bitty baby watermelons

The watermelons just don't seem to be growing.  They are stuck the size of a... I can't even think.... larger than a softball, smaller than a cantaloupe. 


I just decided that we should pick it and see what was on the inside.  What a surprise to find red fruit. 


Tasty red fruit!  Bee and her friend enjoyed a piece and Lou ate his, rind and all.  I tasted the rind since Lou did, and it wasn't bad at all.  


We ate it in about one minute though... There are two more on the vine.  I guess we'll pick those soon too.   (Yes, Lou is wearing a Buzz Lightyear costume.  He hasn't taken it off since friends passed it down to him yesterday)

i started mine super late because i wanted to experiment with the crazy heat in the greenhouse. we have little watermelons right now,about the size of jawbreakers. i am dying to see how it all turns out. i think thye will end up about as big as yours because i waited too long. if i had done them back in june, they would have gone crazy in the greenhouse. they are the only thing really tolerating the heat in there.

I am finally back on line. Do you think the watermelons are the small individual ones?
