Laura Beth FINALLY was able to pick the watermelon she started growing in Kindergarten. This watermelon plant began its life in a dixie cup. As it continued to grow, she begged us to plant it in her garden. We did so thinking nothing would come of this. Boy, were we wrong!!! When we went down to pick this watermelon we noticed four others that were growing and one of those four is close to being ready to pick.
Not knowing a thing about watermelons, we decided it "looked" ready, and took a gamble. When we cut it, it was a beautiful red colors and so sweet! Damon cut the watermelon into little triangles for her to take to school today to share with her friends. She was so tickled that her watermelon was a success!!
