We ate it!  Well, we gave some to the mother-in-law too.

 

Pictures, or it didn't happen.

The grandson and I could have done away with that in pretty short order. He's as watermelon-crazy as I am. I buy a basketball-sized one (round, solid green, no stripes, don't know the name) every week and chill it for us, and we pig out.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

You can dehydrate watermelon. Delicious snack.

While picking the garden this morning, I found this tomato with these odd "hairs" poking out of it.  I hope the photo is clear enough.  These "hairs" have a "ball" on the end and are a little less than a half an inch long.

 

Any ideas as to what this is?  Some kind of bug that lays "eggs" like this???  Or maybe aliens testing out my garden produce?

Looks to me as if the tomato is undergoing a round of acupuncture.

I'll ask him if he has back issues.  This could solve the mystery.

Are the internal seeds in the tomato sprouted?   I've had store bought ripe tomatoes have sprouts inside of them because the seeds have decided to become new tomato plants.
