I’m going to wait for some more of these to ripen before I decide whether I like them better than the beefsteak I usually grow, because if I had to say based on this first brandywine, I’d have to say I should have planted my usual beefsteak. But I’m not making that determination today.
That’s the first first, and here’s the second first.
After looking at this watermelon with arrested development (the one between the early girl tomato and the brandywine tomato that’s no bigger than a baseball and hasn’t grown since that crazy squirrel took a bit out of my first bigger watermelon)……I decided that I may as well cut it as see what it looked like since it obviously wasn’t getting any bigger.
How sad to open it up and see this.The pink flesh was nice and sweet. Heck, the white flesh was nice and sweet. If I closed my eyes, I couldn’t taste any difference between the white and pink. So, what did I do?
