Grow Write Guild: This Plant Always Lets Me Down

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Watermelon has always let me down.  And I know it is possible for me in my zone because there are commercial fields nearby.  I am lured by the promise of tasty ripe melon, but in reality there is no way to tell if a melon is ripe for those unskilled like me.  I have piked it too ripe and too green but never just right.  Last year my plants died before they even grew melons, so this year I took a break from the unreliable watermelons.  Maybe next year I will be enticed to try again. 

This post is written in response to the writing prompt found here by You Grow Girl as part of the Grow Write Guild.
