A semiretired pediatrician living in a countryside in Japan will describe what he thinks of his hobbies, life and the events around himself.
Water melon first ever this summer
I have harvested a water melon for the first ever this summer. It is told the fruit gets ripe 35 days after fertilization. I haven't recorded the date of fertilization this time. And it was a betting when I should harvest it. It sounded hollow when it is hit by finger. I believed it was the sign of maturity. It was bingo.
Sweet and fresh. We could never expect any better one. I sure wish my mother was at the table for this water melon. She loved such a fresh one so much.
