Chad and I planted many things in our garden: corn, tomatoes, peas, beans and watermelons. I knew our garden was doing well and I THOUGHT I saw the VERY FIRST watermelon growing.

But it's not a watermelon.

Turns out the watermelon plants and the spaghetti squash plants were planted a LITTLE too close together. They kind of got intertwined and I was super excited to see SOMETHING growing! Yup, having never seen a spaghetti squash grow in my life I mistook it for a watermelon.

Dang it.

I'd rather have watermelon than squash. I have plenty of plants, but no blooms. I wonder why.
