i carried a watermelon?

Yesterday we went a few hours north to collect some more sponges.  On the way back, there were tons of guys lining the highway selling melons!  Surprisingly enough, people actually grow melons here.  In the middle of the desert.  It really boggles my mind.  All but three of my five tomato plants have withered and died.  As we drove back home, though, we looked a bit closer and saw lots of little melon green melons shining in the sun, planted in sand!  Incredible.

Hope you enjoy some melon today!

...also, if you haven't seen it and don't get the title, watch this right now :)


  1. HA! Love the title. The best melons I have ever had were in the desert in uzbekistan - couldn't understand how they'd grow but they were amazing. Enjoy!

  2. I just finished some wonderful cantelope...thinking of You

  3. I am so glad that there are more lovers of melons and silly girlie movies with Patrick Swayzee! Rock on!

  4. This is very educational content and written well for a change. It's nice to see that some people still understand how to write a quality post! mobile truck repair
