My watermelons must've been closer to ripe than I thought. : (
I checked my garden Sunday evening and something had stolen two of my Blacktail Mountains and one of my little Sakata's Sweet. : ( They were completely gone except for one little chunk of peel from the SS. I found another melon (Orangeglow) that was detatched from the vine and brought it in. Only the very middle was edible and even that tasted like it wasn't ripe yet. What a waste!
I wish I had hydrated lime or cayenne pepper to try. I went back to the house to search and found Taco Bell Fire sauce and white pepper. lol Hope that doesn't make them taste even better. I didn't have anything else. When it gets light enough, I'll go look to see if they're still there.
