Last April I picked up a pack of free watermelon seeds at a festival. I planted them. They didn't come up. For months.
Then in August I noticed a little watermelon vine. It sprouted a tiny fruit. I didn't think it had time to do much.
It got a little bigger. But was still small. And then one day stopped growing.
Once it stopped growing over a few weeks, I figured I'd better pick it. Overnight frosts were looming closer. Well, guess what? It was ripe! It had a lot of seeds I had to pick out, but was sweet and tasty. The boys just loved it!
Readers, do you grow any fall crops?
