Joys of Summer

It looks small but it`s not. It`s a big knife.
Nine kilos of a pure joy!

Do I need to say more?

    I hope you washed that melon first!

  2. gdare says:

    Another easy post. Hope you don`t mind. I need to keep my mind off of serious topics for a while.

  3. gdare says:

    Actually, it stayed in water for about 2 hours ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Suntana says:

    Almost 20 pounds, huh?I'm not sure. Are you saying you have a 20-pound knife? :insane:Or a 20-pound watermelon?After all, a 20-pound Sword for a Serbian Ninja wouldn't be out of the question. Plus, wasn't Crocodile Dundee's knife something like a 20-pound knife?

  5. gdare says:

    20 pounds watermelon. 12 inches knife :chef:

  6. Aqualion says:

    Amateur. I only use edge of hand to slice up watermelon. But of course Chuck Norris only has to look at the watermelon and it goes to pieces from fear.:P

  7. Cois says:

    :chef: now I'm getting jealous of all these summer posts! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  8. Spaggyj says:

    Looks good, but I hate the flavour of watermelon. Always looks so yummy though….

  9. L2D2 says:

    Hi Dare. Watermelon very popular item in Texas in summer. It was on the bugget table of the China King Restaurant where I ate lunch today. I was too stuffed to eat a wedge, though.

  10. Suntana says:

    I prefer Cantaloupe myself.I don't think I've eaten Watermelon in years.I almost ate Watermelon on 4th of July.It was already cut up in wedges without the shell.I was saved by the bell at the last second when someone, maybe the Hostess' husband inquired if there was anything else. They mentioned Pineapple and Cantaloupe. So, I didn't hesitate to speak up that I'd take the Cantaloupe. And that's what I had … protecting my record of no Watermelon in a long time. :headbang: ๐Ÿ˜†

  12. spooksister says:

  13. gdare says:

    Martin, there is no excuse, I know :awww:Clint, believe me your winter is probably warmer than our spring. There are no fruit under the snow :left:Kimmie, you are not the only one. I know some people who don`t like it too, and some who are allergic. But here we are having it always during summer and they taste ecellent :happy:Aidia, I would like to have some colour in my skin during summer and not to look as pale as a wall :PLinda, are they big as ours or small as they have it in Greece, Turkey and middle east countries?Carlos, I should buy a cantalope, too. The one green inside, very sweet :chef:Sal, I was just talking to San about things I will have to try when I come to Canada :yes:

  14. Stardancer says:

    There's a watermelon on the bottom shelf of my refrigerator right now, getting very, very cold. I plan to cut it in pieces tomorrow, but after seeing this post, that melon just might be attacked tonight.:lol:

  15. raniakasim says:

  17. AnitaMargita says:

    They are perfect for hot summer days! :yes:When I have been in China I tried some other kind of watermelon. It was pale, but very sweet. :up:

  18. gdare says:

    Star, go get it. You know you want it ๐Ÿ˜€ :chef:Rania, it stayed in my fridge for a whole day. Cold as ice :happy:Risis, I never tried any other kind except those we have here. And once some big but long ones from Macedonia. Well, one day… :yes:Ana, that must be the yellow ones some of the people mentioned before. When have you been in China?

  28. edwardpiercy says:

    Well I was told that unless the watermelon has been sliced by a cossak sword atop a horse after consuming a pint of vodka that it is not a true watermelon.But you know that Valentina, she has some weird theories.Hope you enjoyed it! :yes:

  29. gdare says:

    San :whistle:Rose ๐Ÿ˜ฎ you don`t like them? :eek:Ed, I think it is a theory about cosacs: if they can`t slice a watermelon with a sword atop a horse and after consuming a litre of vodka, then he is not a real cosac.I might be wrong, as well ๐Ÿ˜›

  30. edwardpiercy says:

    :lol:Oh, okay. Yeah I probably just got it mixed up. My apologies to Valentina.

  32. SittingFox says:

    Oooh…now I want a watermelon! Random fact of the day: coyotes eat watermelons. They're notorious for chewing them in some agricultural districts!

  33. gdare says:

    Isn`t that unusual? I`ve never heard about dogs or wolves eating them so why would coyotes be interested? :left:

    Great!!! :chef:

  35. SittingFox says:

    Foxes are quite omnivorous though. They eat huge quantities of blackberries in the autumn. Coyotes are just very flexible and will eat whatever is available.Kelly had some interesting food preferences – she liked broccoli and absolutely loved chestnuts!

  36. Aqualion says:

    I have just finished vacation. Now it is time to relax. Joy? Always! I am very easily entertained.

  37. gdare says:

    Lucky you. My vacation starts in two weeks, can`t wait :happy:

  42. Abbacus says:

    The watermelon: a miracle marriage of function, flavor and beautiful complexity disguised in simplicity. :dragonfly:
