A few years ago, I tried growing water-melons from some plants that I bought at a local nursery. I believe I got one watermelon--approximately the size of a quarter--for my efforts. Not all that refreshing, really. But, a friend and fellow gardener introduced me to the "Sugar Baby" watermelon. Since I like to try something new every year, I decided to try it this year. I was pleasantly surprised to see some watermelons forming. They must really like heat and humidity because they really started to grow during the recent heat wave. I don't want to wish away the summer or anything, but I am looking forward to trying these watermelons next month.
