Watermelon Number 3!

Eight days after our first successful watermelon pick and only a few hours after we consumed the last of that beauty, we picked another!

Not as long or as heavy as the first, but definitely fatter round the middle, this baby came in at 11.4 kilos, 53 cms long and 75 wide.

A little riper than the first, the crimson centre was dripping with juice.

It looked glorious!

As did the Happy Patch Community garden on this balmy Saturday evening.

About A Kailyard in Adelaide

A Kailyard in Adelaide! We are working hard to be domestically sustainable in the foothills of Adelaide. As we both work fulltime this is not an easy task, but we do our best growing much of our own produce in our yard and in our community garden plots. We reduce, recycle and reuse as much as possible and try hard to not consume mindlessly. We have 5000 l of rainwater, a 5 kw solar system, and use a green energy provider for all our excess needs. Rachel: Mother, partner, teacher, writer, reader, crafter, cook, gardener, artist. Jamie: Father, partner, lecturer, therapist, would-be-politician, gardener, photographer, music lover.
