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.
