This is what I’ve been doing in my garden (besides spending hours pulling weeds). For some reason, I agree to plant watermelons in this year. I didn’t know that they required HUGE hills to grow on! I guess it pays to read the seed packet! Anyway, I spent a morning getting muddy (the kids loved that!), making hills, and planting seeds. For a while, my garden looked like a burial ground for giant hot dogs:

But about a week ago, the first little seedlings started coming up. At last count we had 10 baby watermelon seedlings growing in my garden. Now, they’ll probably take over everything else, and I’ll end up with watermelons up to my eyeballs! At least the hard work of making those hills won’t be for nothing (fingers crossed). Here’s a baby watermelon:
