Woahhh...Watermelon in the Garden!

OK~ I'm stunned that we have managed to actually grow several watermelon this year. Now, I really, really need to know the secret of when to pick these! I'm fairly good when it comes to growing and eating Iowa Sweetcorn, not sure about this Iowa watermelon thing. I'm reading on line.....Knock on it~ Ok, I'm knocking and they sound kind of hollow. And then I'm seeing roll it over and if it's yellow, it's ready. Oh yeah, but how does one roll it over without breaking the stems~ which is a no-no.....Any advice, any of you have~ This Mom will take it. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. Sorry, I can only provide advice on eating watermelons... love them!

  2. Are they the small icebox watermelons? We are growing those too. I was wondering the same thing, because I'm not sure how big they are supposed to get. Maybe I should go knock on them.... We are also grwoing cantelope...


I always love feedback on my blog!
