My first watermelon!

and I should say, my only watermelon.

I forget when I planted this one, but it seemed like it took it FOREVER

 

to finally start growing.  We had a few other blooms, and 2 more that actually started growing, but I suspect the lack of calcium in the soil contributed to the blossom end rot.  These were in the bottom garden (#3) and probably has the crappiest dirt of any of them.  AND AS USUAL….  We had some the first day we cut into it, and then I was left to eat the rest of it by myself.  The whole thing weighed in at 19.2 lbs.
