baby “sugar baby” watermelon
The last few days have not been kind to the garden–lots of rain and lower temperatures. Powdery mildew is trying to take hold of the squash plants, and I am seriously worried that what was shaping up to be a bumper crop of tomatoes will now be a breeding ground for blight.
Despite that, this little one, more sheltered on the south side of the house, is actually attempting to fruit, who knows if it will be at all edible by the end of season, but it sure is cute:
