Slowly the tomatoes are turning red and the watermelons are getting melon-sized. I am going to perfect my ripe-thumping technique by the end of the year. I’ve always thumped melons, but it’s mostly for show – not entirely sure what sound I am listening for. The corn is starting to be ready as well. We tried some out this weekend, and some eggplant too, but they were both slightly too early.
