Open the box and see all the veggies: Watermelon

In fruit, Vegetables at the Door on June 23, 2011 at 4:02 pm

Oh the first box of a new (for me) organic to my door plan. The excitement and builds you open it up and find a small watermelon lurking inside. 😦 I’m allergic, not like this is going to kill me one day (that’s cherry) but in the discomfort is just not worth it way. Plus it was cracked, a huge wedge right down the middle. So sad.

Quality

I have many uncalled for talents, one of which is picking watermelons, i can thump on them and tell you if its ripe or not, youre looking for a B flat, though seeing as how 99% of people cant tell what that is (expect possibly if there’s a piano beside them) What you’re really looking for is an echo. I play drums with them all til i hear a deep echo and then don’t eat it afterwards.  With the crack the echo was lost, so took a risk and had a little taste, it was ok, not as sweet as it could be, but watermelony enough. It was dark seedless, they’re never white seedless, in fact when was the last time you saw the seed? Aside from the toasted and salted variety I havent seen one since i was a kid.

So what did i do with the sucker,

I cut half up into little piece and then attempted to blend them with the blender that features the never turn on motor. Was planning on making watermelon lemonade and attempting to sell it at work, oh well. Lost that half to that and second half sits in my fridge mocking me. In its inedible glory. 😦

Tomorrow’s post should focus on tomatoes
