May 1st Watermelon

Post  elliephant on Mon 02 May 2011, 4:59 pm


Golden Midget watermelon from Baker Creek harvested yesterday and put in the fridge, seen here with today's harvest.

This was my 5 year old's baby and she was so excited to see it turn yellow (indicating ripeness)

A tiny little thing but great fun to grow in a SFG (trellised)

Definitely her favorite thing we've harvested from the garden!

And I thought the vines were diseased because the leaves were turning yellow, but a little bit of googling today led to the amazing discovery that it's actually normal! There's another one growing, but I slacked off on the hand pollination thinking I'd yank it soon...oops!

Oh, that made my mouth water! I was thinking about starting watermelon seeds today, but I think it's still too early here. I hope it was awesome!!

It's good...juicy and sweet, but not an overwhelmingly strong flavor. I wouldn't pick it as the best watermelon I've ever had but certainly not anywhere among the worst, and most definitely the best I've ever grown. Laughing
