August 15, 8 pm, six-and-a-half pounds...welcome to my tummy, watermelon baby!
And she was soooo good. :) There's another one out there for us, too. We're just waiting around for her to ripen up...eerily similar to the last few weeks of being pregnant!
My kitchen counters are finally cleared from the mountains of produce stacked there. I've determined that the only thing I don't like about canning is that it uses all the BIG pots and pans, which makes the kitchen seem much, much messier than it really is. The best part? Seeing those beautiful jars just resting on the counter gives me a highly addictive happy rush. :)
