Melon Magic

Our neighbors brought over the strangest thing
a few nights ago.

Do not adjust your picture.  It is orange.
I first heard about these peculiar melons last year,
and have since come to find out there are heirloom varieties.
Still, I couldn't bring myself to buy or grow a watermelon
that wasn't red.
It just didn't seem right.
Guess what?

As soon as my tastebuds had anything to say about it,
I got over that real fast.

You can find heirlooms of many colors and sizes

Here's a recipe for watermelon lemonade,
especially refreshing when the temps climb high.

It works no matter the color of your melon!

***Happy Father's Day!***
