Sum, Sum, Summertime...

Here at the farm we plant Watermelon! Yummmmmy! Did you know? The hotter the weather, the sweeter the watermelon. It takes roughly 90 days from planting a watermelon seed for it to grow into a ripe little melon!

God created seedtime and harvest....for us to eat and sustain ourselves....and it is amazing to watch the little seed sprout very small at first and then grow into something wonderful. I'm blessed when I see this process over and over again. It reminds me of God's goodness to us.

We have also planted yellow meated watermelons and they are incredibly sweet! It would be like a brown or white egg....they look different...but they are both eggs and taste like eggs.
So do different varieties of melons...they may look different but both of them are DELICIOUS!
"God said, 'I have given you every plant with seeds on the face of the earth and every tree that has fruit with seeds. This will be your food...'"Genesis 1:29


  1. Melons bring back memories of a dear friend who's home was decorated in watermelon green, red, pink and white . . so beautiful and cheery. Thanks for bringing that memory back into my head. :o} paula

  2. My favorite summer fruit snack! Are the yellow ones called Sugar Dollies??.. I think??.. I used to work on a farm, and I can only remember a few of the countless varieties of melons, apples, and tomatoes! I loved bringing all those fresh goodies home with me at the end of a day, though!.. Well, anyways, I love your little cross-stitched watermelon, and how cute the red rick-rack looks too! ~tina

  3. You are not going to believe this one, but somewhere in my life I heard an old wive’s tale saying that you could’t eat watermelon until after June 15 Have you ever heard that one? Needless-to-say, I’ve eaten it before june 15, and I am very much alive. I love your post! Hugs, Genie

  4. Nothing says summer like watermelons, how wonderful to grow your own!


  5. I just love all of your blocks :) We love to eat watermelon in the summer to and sure wish we could grow it! That would be so neat. Enjoy your harvest when it's ready!
