Crop circles, unexplained lights in the sky and now strange marking on my Watermelons? ET Phone home? Is there life outside of the Earth and if so, how were they able to make such small circles on my Watermelons?
Okay. Okay. No, I have not gone off the green deep end. I am just joking. (Well maybe.) Pictured above is an heirloom watermelon that I grew from seed. (I acquired the seeds from Baker Heirlooms.) It does not have the usual green stripes that you see in the supermarket. This melon is dark green. Weighs maybe 10 lbs. Lots of black and white seeds. Really sparked a conversation every time I showed people the markings.
I happened to love growing heirlooms because I have no idea what the vegetable is going to look like. Many of you might recall my lemon cucumber that looks like a tennis ball with an 8 o’clock shadow on its skin.
Was it sweet? One was and the others were semi-sweet but I can’t blame the watermelons. This summer it rained more than the sun shined.
- Has anyone grown any plant with unusual markings?
- Has anyone grown this type of watermelon?
- Is there life outside of our world?
