I picked my first watermelon out of my garden...18lbs......I haven't cut it yet so I don't know if I picked it too early but since some type of creature has been feasting on my cantaloupes....I didn't want to provide them more than one kind of fruit for their feast : ))

I thoughtb it was a marrow or large cucumber. I wish it was warm enough to grow melons in England

That's a really nice watermelon Nancy. Jubiliee? Big enough to just eat the heart out of it and bury the rest for the earthworms.

Impressive size indeed !! At first lookI have taken it for a zucchini !!

Larry, I don't recall what type of watermelon plant I bought...just grabbed one to plant for the fun of it....great idea you just shared with me....I truly never thought to bury the rest...usually put some out for the birds and bees and throw the rest away

Thanks Ruth.....some of my zucchinis got rather large because I didn't know when to pick them and some were oversights too...I thought bigger was better...but my sister-in-law said no : ))

Indeed they shouldn't be too large. I have a recipe to prepare a tasty zucchini cutting it lengthways and fill each halve (without its pips) with a kind of sauce bolognese. In the oven it has to cook until it is tender.

That sounds very good & the sauce looks GREAT.....I'm going to try it...I'm not a great cook at all....but I do like trying new dishes...Thank you much Ruth!!!
