A Sweet Wednesday!

I wasn't expecting this.

For those of you who know, I have planted a small portion of my backyard with squash and watermelon.

For a couple of days now, I kept looking at the watermelon fruit. It seemed ripe already. I've been debating whether it was time to pick it or not.


But the fruit was so small. It can't be ripe already. I could hold it in the palm of my hand. The vine itself was so small.


And so yesterday, I harvested the watermelon fruit.

I was delighted when I cut it up. It was dark red in color and almost over-ripe. It was so sweet!!!


You can't tell just by these photos because the slicing board I used was also small.

To give you a little perspective... this is the half of the watermelon in my standard-size dinner plate. 😲 Surprise, surprise!


It was a miniature watermelon, the size of a cantaloupe, with hardly any seeds in it. It's about 7 inches in diameter.

I didn't know it was a mini-watermelon. No wonder!!!

This plant is full of surprises. First, I thought that I planted it too late, because the vine is not growing. Then it developed a fruit, to my surprise. And to harvest a great fruit is a biggie by my book.

It was my first experience with miniature watermelon. I didn't realize that the seeds I bought were for a miniature watermelon.

A delightful mistake!

Hey @luvshares, here is a little bit of BEER from @zirochka for you. Enjoy it!

I have never heard of a mini-watermelon! 😮 The inside looks so yummy, though! 😋

I think I will buy the seeds forever now. It takes so little a room to grow them.
It is goodness sweet and refreshing!

That's awesome watermelon can be amazing almost like pure sugar if you get the right one and you can't go wrong with homegrown

Yup.. somehow this one was very sweet!
Homegrown is best! But not much of it, @bitcoinman !
I just plant whatever I feel like!

This one was sweet all over! And just the right size for me, hehehe!

I'm glad you didn't wait for it to get bigger and lose it.

It looks so beautiful with it's deep red flesh.

I'm glad it turned out to be a good one.

That's what I said! If I waited a day or two days more, it will be truly over-ripe!
It is beautiful! And just the right size!!!
SWEET!!!

There is something refreshing and thrilling about eating what you have grown! This is literally from my garden to my table, And it is SWEET!!!

Of course it should be sweet! There's nothing as sweet as home grown food. Haha. Thanks for the token 🥰

I am interested in planting year-round for vegetable and root crops, just for me. But planning is not the same as actually doing it. So let us see 🥰
Have a very nice day, @zara-dee-first !

Haha! You got this I believe. Afterall, you'll still want to see what you plant blossom and yield fruit just like your watermelon did.

Yummy, a really dark red sweat one :). Here it got already really cold. Summer ended abruptly and now it feals already like late autumn

It was so surprisingly sweet!
That's the best season to travel to Italy, some say!

I have never been a watermelon fan, but I do have to say, that does look tempting! I find watermelon to be flavorless. What was the taste of this one like? Very nice!🤗😘💖🌸 !LADY

I might have to try it. I just remember as a kid, I often wondered why anyone bothered with them; they didn't have much taste and you had to deal with all those seeds! Love ya back!🤗😘💞🌸

You tasted the wrong variety of watermelons... hahaha!

Could be!🤗😘🌸💖

i have read about mini-watermelon's and I always wondered how they taste compared to the full size version..😇 Sounds like Liz needs to plant some of these next year @silversaver888, did it have the same amount of days to mature as a full size watermelon??

No, it was shorter! That is why I was wondering what was wrong. It's good I harvested it right away!
It was just about two months! I think that it will be an excellent plant for next year.
Here, I found this in the web

The vine is just 3 ft long and can be grown in a pot!

How I love the harvested watermelon. This one is really my favorite and I do love making it as shakes or juice. Have a great day my friend. Keep safe always.

Ooh shakes! I love making mine with 1 ½ cups diced watermelon, 2 cups milk, and 2 teaspoons white sugar!
Yum!!!

Have a nice weekend, @pinkchic

How juicy, red and delicious this watermelon looks, what a privilege to be able to plant one in your own backyard. It would make a fabulous fruit salad.

It never made it the fruit salad! This size was just enough for two dinners... fresh from the garden watermelon.
