It Worked!

We've attempted to grow watermelon for years. This year Michael had saved some seeds from a Texas Rattler Melon. He faithful watered the, fertilized them and tended them in our container garden.

Unfortunately, we had to move from our home before they were ready.  Michael harvested the two biggest.
Personal size

Tonight he cut them up and we had them with dinner at Krista and Arielle's.

He and Shannon carried the rest of the containers over to their house. We hope they will continue to grow.  Shannon was wonderful enough to stop and offer to use his leaf blower to clear out our garage and driveway. Kyle and Michelle showed up and we exchanged a deposit check for a house and keys.  It's been a busy few weeks.

We miss Shannon and Valerie - great neighbors
YES , we needed to drop things off in OREGON so we could organize.
