From the FIRST MATE's
Back on Aprill 11, 2009, I posted a photo of Henry Maurer's watermelon with other fruit & vegetables to form an Hawaiian scene.
The next day or so, Don Counts sent me two items about watermelons. A round watermelon can take up a lot of room in a refrigerator, and the usually round fruit often sits awkwardly on refrigerator shelves. Smart Japanese farmers have forced their watermelons to grow into a square shape by inserting the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine.
The other one is just for fun! From "Funny Town" - incredible watermelon sculptures! You have to see these!!! Click here to see some of the most beautiful art you may ever see all from a watermelon.
Thanks, Don, these are great!
