AHHHH!!! What other sound personifies the soul of mid-summer than the juicy splitting of a ripe, red watermelon?! The mythical ambrosia of the gods could not taste better! Yum, yum! And what could be more fun than the "PHTHOOOEEEE" of spitting out the seeds?!

This particular watermelon came from my mother-in-law's garden. Hubby came lugging it in this morning and nothing would do 'til I got the knife and whacked it open. You should have heard our cries of satisfaction to see this ruby-red baby. The smell is also almost intoxicating. Homegrown, no pesticides, and absolutely free!
Life in the country! What can beat it!

You got spam.

I love watermelon, but I hate spitting out the seeds.

solomon-thanks, spam duly removed. I don't mind the seeds too much really, I am just afraid that my mother's predictions would come true if I swallowed them; I'd grow watermelon vines out my ears!
