Only in Texas would you see ripe watermelons in December.
We bought about five watermelons this year. We tossed them into a dirt hill in the pasture.
About three months ago we started seeing the vines growing like crazy. They must have spread out about a 12 x 12 area. Then we noticed a lot of watermelons.We figured the cold weather would come to soon and ruin the chances of them ripening. Boy were we ever wrong.
We have eaten a few of them and they have been super sweet. I guess the trick to growing watermelons in Manvel, Texas is to just toss the ones you have already eaten.
There are about twenty more besides this. None of these were planted they all came up from the seeds of the rinds we tossed out.
In Texas you never know what you might see.
