This is the first ripe Sugar Baby Watermelon from my melon patch this year. I picked one in July and when I cut into it, it was still white...not close to being ripe. But as you can see, this one is perfect. It's large too. We cut into it on Saturday. I sliced half of it for dinner as you can see here:We ate it with dinner Saturday and Sunday and I think there are still one or two slices left. I have the other half of the melon still in the fridge and we need to eat it today.
Meanwhile, I have 3 more ripe watermelons and 7 or 8 ripe muskmelons in the garden right now. What am I going to do with all of them?
Today local weather:
High temp: 77 F
Low temp: 58 F
Sunny and unusually cool
