Moon and Stars

So I have been checking on the watermelons daily and they are growing so fast!

Sweet Watermelons
They are easier to spot now...
They are all about the size of a football now.

Look at that!
Scott pointed out yellow spots on the leaves and when we looked closer at the melons, we saw that they had yellow spots too.  I googled around looking to pin down the specific melon growing in my garden and stumbled upon the Moon and Stars variety. Pretty cool...

Pretty melon and pretty leaves...
I was almost certain that this was what we have, but I have trust issues, so I dug around into my stash of seeds in the sun room and found that I had saved the envelope (along with a few more seeds).

And THIS is why I thought they were the yellow flesh watermelon. That yellow spot is the "moon" in the watermelon galaxy. I sure hope we get to enjoy these beauties!
