it's meg's "life long dream" - she is 9 - to grow watermelons. so, for the last 4 weeks, we've had 29 watermelon vines sprouting in the dining room in front of the big window, each nestled into their little peat pots, straining toward the sunshine. today was the big day that we had set aside for planting! how exciting!
so we dug up the "grass" (read: chickweed), amended the soil, and one by one, planted 3 -4 inch watermelon vines along little hills... and prayed that the bunnies won't come eat them in the middle of the night!
if we get 29 vines worth of watermelon, you better believe we'll be sharing!
