Counting Watermelons

Counting Watermelons

watermelon-counting-7-7-14-500

We counted watermelons. The kids were ecstatic! When we first planted them in their garden boxes, they were neatly identified by their garden stakes. Now, the watermelon vines have grown in and are completely tangled and trailing each other everywhere.

By looking at them, I think identify them through their shapes and colors as babies: Klecky’s watermelon is oval, large, dark rind with light striping; Sugar Baby watermelon is round; Yellow watermelon has a light green rind with dark green striping; and Moon and Stars – well we couldn’t find any yet so we’ll have to wait.

Of course, some of the meandering watermelon are still too young to identify as of yet – so maybe we will have a harvest time surprise.
