Gardening Diary: Male & Female Watermelon Blossoms

I am fascinated by the phenomenon of “male” and “female” flowers in my garden. First it was the cucumbers. I was excited to find both male and female blossoms and was thrilled to be able to see the difference between the two.

I finally started seeing blossoms on one of the Sugar Baby watermelon plants the other day, and I’m happy to report we have a good mix of both male and female! hehee. I know, it’s a sick obsession I have!

And the close-close-close up; isn’t it so cool you can actually see the watermelon stripes already? It’s a tiny little thing, about the size of a pea! :)
