More Market Bounty


Besides tomatoes, watermelons abound at the Farmers' Market in July and August. And, just like the tomatoes, there are a number of different varieties available. There are the small Sugar Babies and the huge Jubilees. Some have red pulp, and others have yellow pulp. Some have a dark, green rind, while others have white stripes. And, there are those with seeds and those without seeds.

I've had watermelon gazpacho, watermelon ice, and a weird watermelon drink. In searching the internet, I see that there are recipes for watermelon pies, cakes, muffins and puddings. You can pair it with onions and make a salad. Use it to make watermelon barbecue sauce, watermelon vinaigrette or watermelon honey. And, I kid you not, there is a recipe for deep-fried watermelon.

NO THANK YOU! I'll take mine cold and plain!

Watermelon's great on a hot day. Just a shame England doesn't get that many. Hot days that is, not watermelons!
