A watermelon feast

I went out the see how my watermelons were doing and found one had grown quite large so I picked it and brought it in for dessert tonight. I tried to weigh it but it was too much for my small scale so my husband cut it in two and weighed each half... weight: 12 pounds, 4 ounces.  A feast for the whole family!  We only ate half of it and we were stuffed.  That baby had a ton of seeds too. Initially we tried to pick them out nicely but after a couple slices gave up and just started spitting them on the counter. It's more fun that way anyway!  A true taste of summer: a good watermelon mess -

I think tomorrow I might try making watermelon rind pickles.
