Embracing August

well, i am trying to make the best of my least favorite month and my "rainbow sherbet icebox watermelons" are definitely helping. i was worried they would never produce fruit, the vines were weak and scraggly looking for the longest time but now they are flourishing and putting out new flowers and fruits every day it seems. i can't wait to cut them open and see if the flesh will be orange, yellow or pink.
i think this one may be ready by this weekend, they only weigh in at 4-7 lbs. here is a tiny new melon still wearing it's dress. so cute.
