It’s the kind of cold out that causes New Englanders to have a reputation of cantankerous and unfriendly, and all I can think of is watermelon. We got our catalog from Seed Savers Exchange today – and we thumbed through the pages dreaming of caprese salad and the sweet smell of lemon balm. This is the varietal of watermelon I want to plant.
It’s called moon and stars, and it makes me think of warm nights at picnic tables and babies covered in red bits of sweet sticky. These are the kind of warm thoughts I need to get me through the coldest nights.
