Dumb and Dumber....

Doesn't this picture just make your mouth water?  We were so excited to have a watermelon on the vine, but it was so small, I just knew we had to wait and let it grow some more.

Sigh.


Not as mouth-watering now, huh?

Yes, My DH told me so.  Yes, he said we should pick it.  And no, I didn't think we should.

WHAT do I know?

Clearly, nothing.  Because last weekend we went to harvest it and were not just disappointed, but totally grossed out.

So, I am not just dumb, but dumber.   I only get the thrill of growing it, not eating it.  Won't be the first time that's happened, either intentionally or unintentionally. 

But this time, I'm really sad.  

I'm a bad gardener.
