{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo capturing a moment from the past week or something that has been on my mind.  If you’re inspired to do the same, please leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments.

Sugar Baby Watermelon

The cool and wet Pacific Northwest is not known for its watermelon but I wanted to take a stab at it anyway.  If any variety has a chance to thrive here, it’s this one.  The 8 inch, 10 pound Sugar Baby Watermelon has a relatively short growing season (75 days) which is all it will get…if it’s lucky.

    I hope your water melon will grow!
    A chain card is a postcard, which roulates in a group of 4 or 6 persons. Every person divides a postcard in f.i. 4 squares, writes the address of the person next in line in the first square, and sends it (stamped off course 😉 ). This one covers his/her address with nice stickers, and sends it to the next in line, etc, until it comes ‘home’ with the original sender.
    You can see some of the, with the front and the back, on my blog =)

    We live in South Carolina and have had ZERO luck with watermelon but every year we try again. This year Scott (husband) planted some watermelons in one of the sections of our composting bin thats empty except for the last bit of some super rich compost. I hope that they will do something for him as he wants “fresh from the garden” taste – not warehoused.
