Wordless Wednesday #8

Home Grown Watermelon

My 9 year old son grew this watermelon from a seed. We went to Chick-fil-A one Tuesday night (family night) and the kids all got to plant seeds. We have NEVER had luck growing watermelon before, but...he did. "C" took care of it everyday and made sure it received lots of water. He was SO proud of his watermelon. Here he is earlier this month holding his own home grown watermelon.

Pin It!

How neat! I've never grown watermelon before. Did it taste good too?

I didn't try it because I do not like watermelon..but, everyone else thought it was good.

We can't always make it to every WW but your announcement on the WW sign in just begged me to do one more stop! Your son should be so proud of himself what a great accomplishment, most kids his age don't commit to something like this because the reward is not instant, I am very glad you shared this!
