My patience has worn out on the watermelon, It has been "growing" for 40-50 days and should be done. However, when I say it has been growing I mean it is still on the vine, but not getting any bigger. I gave up and took it from the vine brought it in and cut it up. As you can see from the pictures it is trying to turn red, but it was just NOT happening, that or I did not wait long enough. There is one more that may make it, but the other 10 that started to grow have all rotted out on the bottom. The kids all wanted to try the watermelon and it smelled pretty good, but it was hard to eat not very juicy or soft. Nathan LOVED it and wanted to eat more and more. Wish me luck on the last one!!
