Watching the watermelons grow

Aww, aren't they cute? Baby watermelons, growing in a big pot in the driveway. Lots of room to sprawl on the gravel; lots more sun than in the back garden. This heirloom variety is called "Moon and stars" because the skin develops yellow spots on a dark green background. The leaves are speckled also. Supposedly they're a small melon, though one website mentioned 25-50 lbs. (Kidding, right?)

Will they make it to maturity? Stay tuned!
