I had given up on my garden this year. I didn't want to deal with the water bill from watering through all the heat this summer. It was brutal here. So I let go and ripped up most of it and put plastic down. I let a few things continue mostly with bad result but then I got this surprise. A watermelon and little cantaloupe are thriving now that we got some rain. THe watermelon is a nice size already. Very exciting.
