Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Watermelon agony and tomato ecstasy

Tucson, AZ(Zone 9b)

This is my second summer to try Malili watermelons. Last year the darn things never got fully ripe. This year I thought one looked ripe but when I cut it open it was still white inside. So I determined to leave the melons on the vine forever and a day if I had to, but the bugs got them first and I ripped out the whole plant. I'm done with that variety.

However, my Prudens Purple tomatoes have ripened in full scorching Tucson sun, and I am head over heels in love.

You can make pickled watermelon or eat neat like a cucumber. Do not throw them away. They are delicious!!!
