Tis the Season

What season you say, well watermelon of course.  We love watermelon and we're always glad to start seeing it in the markets.  Only trouble is that with there just being the 2 of us we can't eat a whole melon, they turn bad before we can finish them.  Thank goodness for being able to buy part of a melon.  Two advantages, they're small enough for us to finish and you can get a good look at how ripe they are.  I don't care how much I thump on a whole one I can't tell it it's ripe or not.  The one disadvantage is that cut watermelon is more expensive than whole ones.  But I can live with that, after all the watermelon is a treat.
Today at the market though they had no cut melon, just sliced and that's too expensive even for a treat.  But we were lucky, they had small melons, just right for 2 people.  So now we can sit and spit, 'cause these melons have seeds.
One of the cut sections is just about right for us.


Here's the little one we got today, I sliced it up and it's in the refrigerator getting cool.

  1. We love watermelon, too. I think we have it for lunch with cottage cheese just about every day in the summer. We just had our first Georgia peaches of the summer and oh, boy, were they tasty! The peaches Up North never tasted this peachy. Your photo is making my mouth water.

  3. We are so happy to see watermelons in the stores again. I haven't bought one yet. Walmart just got a big load in and they do look good.

  4. I like watermelon but have never bought one. I've eaten it in the US and in South Africa but not in the UK. Next time it gets really hot I shall have to look out for some. Of course I might have a long wait - really hot doesn't happen often in the UK:)

  6. I remember buying slices of watermelon at the side of the road in Italy and sitting with it watching the lizards on a hot stone wall. Funny how things stick in your mind. A huge watermelon would be too much for us too:)

  7. I love watermelon too. I buy portions because, as you say, a whole melon is just too much.

  9. We bought a large one in this week's shop and it looks like we'll be having it every day with every single meal and as a snack in between times!

  11. We like watermelon too and only buy whole ones when the grands are around! We cut the melon into pieces and put them in ziplock bags, great for taking outside for a snack!
