While some folks may have frost on their pumpkins today, an unusual cool snap of 42 degrees almost put frost on my watermelon. Well, not quite but I just couldn't pass up the chance to use (and modify) an old garden expression that rarely applies to Florida. This cute little melon is compliments of the compost we added to our pepper plants. This surprise (but now identified) vine popped up along with about a dozen tomato plants from our composted vegetable scraps. We're still waiting to identify the tomatoes. All we can tell right now is that they are a small, round cherry type of some kind.
