The $9 Watermelon

Jeff called me and said he bought a big watermelon for $9 from a man selling them at a gas station out of the back of a pick-up. Watermelons are selling at our local grocery stores for around $4-$5 dollars so I first thought he did not get much of a deal.
Folks, it turns out this is a really big watermelon. It weighed 38 pounds on our bathroom scales and measured 37 inches around the middle. And it tastes so much better than any grocery watermelon.
I was wrong, Jeff got a great deal! It does not look too red in this picture but it really is red and so delicious.

It is from Rush Springs, Oklahoma and they will be having their annual watermelon festival in just a few days.


  1. I want some!! I want some!! What a beauty of a watermelon!! We have really enjoyed watermelon here this year!!

  2. What a PURTY watermelon:)


  3. That looks really good. We haven't gotten a decent tasting watermelon all year.
