Lacuna Sabbath

Hee hee hee hee hee

Look what I growed! Well, it growed itself really - Pa Duck Herder and I spent the afternoon dismantling all the old trellis and watering system at the new farm, and relocating it all back at the old farm (community garden). And look was was still growing up at the new farm, despite a month of neglect!

This is the first time I have tried growing watermelon - there were only 2 large ones on the vine - one for Dad, one for us! And it is delicious! I will definitely grow them again next year, in better soil and hopefully get more fruit. The variety is "sugar baby". And there are still heaps of seeds for next season. yay!

So that's it for the new farm - back to my lovely old soil at the community garden. Just in time for autumn plantings..... but more on that later no doubt.

Nice one, duckie! I tried the sugar babies last year and they all died. It's good to see this delicious one you grew. Well done!

Nice looking melon.
My kids could eat that in one sitting.
Better not tell them you grow them or they will sniff you out and steal the whole crop!

Thanks Rhonda and Lucy C! - Lucy C- would you be disapointed to learn that I quickly ate half, and when Mr Duck Herder had only eaten a 1/4 a couple of hours later, quickly gobbled down the rest!
