Horticulture is God's gift to me. It is my escape from the things that would otherwise take a toll on life. It has taught me so many lessons.

@usgardentags Thanks to seeds discarded in organic kitchen waste, my friend will soon be able to harvest some lovely water melons.

Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus var. lanatus, familyCucurbitaceae) is a vine-like (scrambler and trailer) flowering plant originally from southern Africa. It is a large, sprawlingannual plant with coarse, hairy pinnately-lobed leaves and white to yellow flowers. It is grown for its large edible fruit, also known as a watermelon, which is a special kind of berrywith a hard rind and no internal division, botanically called apepo. The fruit has a smooth hard rind—usually green with dark green stripes

Awesome Jason. I feed my horses watermelons. They poop out the seeds, and literally grow their own melons in their pastures. So cool😄😂🐎💩🍉

@SikoMa this speaks volumes to the tenacity of the seeds.I hear that horse maure is very rich so those melons should be of superior quality.
