One to Grow On

Remember how I said I wasn't sure our watermelon plant was going to bear fruit this year? Well, this morning's garden reconnaissance revealed this: A baby watermelon, about the size of an avocado pit! Now hopefully it will be spared the hungry jaws of neighborhood vermin and also those sneaky jerk-offs who stole all of my little old lady neighbor's persimmons off her tree last year just as the fruit was reaching its peak.

Go, baby watermelon, go!
