Life List Day 84 - My Own Personal Watermelon!



How did I miss this? How did I not know about the evolutionary miracle that is the personal watermelon? I didn't think science could improve upon going seedless, but I was at the grocery store and saw a watermelon that could fit in my hand and - more importantly - in my refrigerator. I bought one for me and one for Danny. No need to share!

As if that weren't exciting enough, I googled "personal watermelon" only to find out this fun tidbit that I offer to you today in honor of my life list: In Japan, they grow watermelons in various shapes.

Wonderful site! Genious idea. Kudos. I will definitely drop in too see how you are doing on your list. I'm a blogger virgin, I'm happy I'm finding great sites from which to learn from...WATERMELONS! No summer is complete without them.
PS. Found your site via Getty72/One Mans Travel Blog. Glad I did.

Love the pictures !!

Am new too and trying to figure out what makes an interesting blog. Started it as a money experiment to see how people make money from their blogs. Miserable $8 after 2 months of work so far. Can you come visit me and give me some comments ? I'm at www.whymoneymatters.blogspot.com, www.whyhealthmatters.blogspot.com

I happen to know how to grow watermelon square. When its young, put it in the hole in a cinderblock, then you got yourself one square watermelon!

I cannot believe you condone this blatant abuse of the watermelon to gratify your base culinary and aethetic urges. Would you bind your daughter's feet? Would you reject a mate because he had a big round belly with a yellow spot on the underside?

Would you? Would you?
