Ruby Red Watermelon

It sat for weeks in the garden. Getting bigger and bigger.

Finally a thump, thump, thump on the hard shell said it was time for pickin'.

Cutting it in half revealed the sweet pink-red flesh inside.
Prepare for sticky hands, drippy elbows and spitting of seeds.
Yum, Yum, Yum!
Before I bit in I could swear it winked and smiled at me!

This small but delicious watermelon was grown right here Round The Bend.
For more Ruby Tuesday join Mary here.

The soft ruby is sweet, with a satisfying crunch. The ripe red fruit is the tasty end to a perfect meal...

What a great post! I can just taste smell and feel the juice from that melon slice.
Nothing better than straight from the garden.

Nothing says 'summer' like home-grown watermelon. I'll bet it was (is) delicious.

Mary Lou said...

YUM.I have one in the fridge..Can't wait.

Ann said...

Did yu feel that you should eat it after it smiled at you? I grew a pimpkin vine, it had 2 pumpkins. i gave one to a friend. The other I kept just to make me happy because I don't eat pumpkins. Not long after, it started to rot. What a waste.

Neal said...

Send me a piece....with salt on it. :) I've had as many good watermelons this year as I had in the previous 10 years. Hope all is well with you.
