I took these photos after Friday/Saturday's snowstorm and thought that that would be the end of it. I hope that's the case.

Everyone is complaining about the weather right now, and I hate to add to it, but it's hard not to complain after a winter this long. And one that doesn't seem like it's ready to end just yet.

The onions and basil are OK, and the peppers were slow starters, but they seem to be catching up now. The Cream of Saskatchwan watermelon only germinated a single seed, so I'm wondering if I did something wrong. I may try to plant some more, but have been reminded by my daughter that she is allergic to watermelon, so why exactly was I growing them if she couldn't eat them?
A very good question- as most of hers are. I told her that I'm hoping that she'll be able to eat these, as they're yellow watermelons (almost white, apparently) and they may not make her react like red watermelons do. I have no idea if this is true, but I've heard that some people who are allergic to tomatoes are apparently allergic to the red pigment, but don't react to oddly colored tomatoes. I don't know if that's true either, but I hope to find out more about watermelon allergies through this process at least.
Thoughts on allergies and garden produce? Please leave a comment and I'll be glad to respond.
