I'm glad Stoney Acres was a help to you! I always cut a plug before I harvested my watermelons, because that's what my grandfather did. I'd always patch it back up with a piece of duct tape if it wasn't ready, even though Grandpa would have laughed at that ;-)
I'm right there with you!
Looks like it was tasty!
That looks delicious. I'll have to try Granny's method here.
It works out pretty well!
