The summer fruit. It’s 90% water, for which I think it gets it’s name and makes it the summer fruit. It’s like drinking a glass of water while eating a sweet fruit. It’s fun to eat as well, just ask any kid! It has become a regular part of our summer day, just like the heat and bright sunny skies. I remember planting some watermelon and not realizing it grew on a vine. Well the vines started over taking my yard and as the melons grew my 300 pound Mastiff dog became more and more frightened of these invaders from another planet. He would bark and bark at the melons, so much so, that we had to get rid of them.
How to celebrate – Enjoy some watermelon. Plant some watermelon but give it room to grow! Try some with salt to bring out even more flavor.
