We enjoy our summer watermelons and my 5 year old grandson tried his hand at growing his own watermelons. His little vine produced a whopping crop of 2.
He was excited with his little garden, he’s growing a carrot too.
Here’s a juicy watermelon recipe to finish out the summer with. Mix it up for your weekend gathering and enjoy the end of watermelon season.
Watermelon Salsa Recipe
Small seedless round watermelon
Cut the watermelon top off – about 1/4 from the top – you’ll use the watermelon as a bowl for your salsa
Hollow out the watermelon by cutting the flesh of the watermelon in cubes – reserve the juice
Seed and dice the cucumber
Chop the Yellow pepper
Peel and dice the Jicama
Seed and chop the Jalapenos
Combine all the ingredients and add some of the reserved juice to the mixture.
Add mixture to your “watermelon bowl” and serve and enjoy.
