Well, here are the results of my first attempt at growing watermelon vertically. I have to say, it was a bit underwhelming. I could easily hold this melon in one hand. I’m not too sure what happened there but here is what I ended up with.
We decided to cut it up and eat it anyway. The flesh was slightly yellowish so I got a little nervous. I tried it first. It was good. Not great but good.
It could have been sweeter but it tasted like watermelon. Overall, it was kind of funny. But I think I’ll try to figure out what I did wrong for next year. I’m not going to give up, I’m just going to try to learn from my mistakes.
