Watermelons, Two in a Container!

I’m hoping that both will grow to their full size. The smaller watermelon appeared about 2 weeks ago but I wanted to give itIMG_1869 time to be sure that it was indeed a fruit (and not still an unfertilized female ovary) and that it had grown enough to have a good chance of lasting. I love the bold striping!

In the past few days, we’ve had a bit of a heat wave in my area (mid-90s) and frankly, the rind of both melons appears to feel soft. I added a bit of extra water on those days and they both recovered fine, with rinds returning to their firm state.
