Do you know how to pick a watermelon? I took a visiting friend to Darnell Farms yesterday, a local farm right down the road from us. This was the scene:
Perfection with all those old trucks and the watermelon stacked up in them!
A few years ago when I had the clothing line in California my friend Lisa and I came up with trading cards for each dress of the month. One of our most popular dresses was the watermelon dress…this was one side of the card:
How to Pick a Watermelon

This is Lisa’s daughter Elle modeling the dress…brings back so many memories:
While I don’t make the dresses anymore, I do still sell the sewing pattern. You can find it in my Etsy Shop here.
It’s also easy to print your own seeds onto red fabric using freezer paper method!
Hi Ashley! Adorable printable but just one thing – you have a typo… “allowed to ripened in the sun” – oops! Check “ripened” – thought you’d want to know so you could fix it before too many get printed. 🙂

Thank you! It’s fixed! It’s probably been that way for years and we’ve never noticed 😉
Sometimes when reading your blog, I wonder about your friend Lisa. I remember how she was such a big help when you had cancer (and lots of poop jokes, if I’m remembering correctly). We’ve moved often and leaving good friends is always the hardest part.
I thought you might enjoy a diy blog I read where there are lots of good chicken posts.
