Evokes memories of picking watermelons straight from the fields, of crows sitting on the fence waiting to peck the melons for the sweetness inside, finding snakes slithering among the vines and also, though I never did it - stealing watermelons.
A few summers ago I discovered humming birds and butterflies enjoy watermelon. so now I often save a slice for them ;
My garden made completely out of reclaimed wood. I have 4 blueberry bushes, 2 raspberry bushes, 2 Concord grape vines, 6 types of tomatoes, 2 strawberry patches, a watermelon patch, cucumbers, seedless watermelons, peppers, peas, beans, lettuce, and an herb garden.
