We have picked 3 of the watermelons from our flower bed now. Around July 20th Kilian couldn't stand it anymore, so he picked the largest one. It was not ripe - completely white in the center. So we waited about 2 more weeks and picked the second one (seen in pictures above). Perfect. We just enjoyed the third about an hour ago and still have at least four more to look forward to. Now I am going to go wash pink stains out of some clothes, and wipe off a sticky table.
