Watermelon Time

Dog days of summer bring thoughts of refreshing watermelon to me. Great to eat as these fellows are enjoying theirs – outside – easy clean up with a garden hose, and if seeds escape, just maybe you’ll end up with something like this on your fence next year! Is this the cutest watermelon you have ever seen? It’s the size of a baseball today, but only as big as a marble one week ago.

Like Sunflowers and cucumbers, watermelons are great fun for the kids to watch grow, especially once the fruits start setting – Like I said, the size of a marble to as big as a baseball in one week – how magic is that!

Another fun kid thing is Look What I Made. Every Saturday afternoon at 2pm all of our retail locations offer this free program to children under 12. Kids come in and make a flower arrangement for a parent or teacher or even for themselves. Turnout and feedback from parents and children and WKF staff has been great. Everyone has a good time.
