how do you et your watermelon?

Are you the kind of person who takes a nibble and leaves a lot?


Or do you eat carefully down to the last of the red flesh leaving just a skerrick to avoid eating any of the white part?


Or do you like watermelon enough to risk eating a little white pith to get the last of the red flesh?


Or do you get that feeling that you want just a little more watermelon when you get down to the white and just give it a test bite?


Or have you developed a taste for the white as well?


Or do you say "Red? White? What's the difference? And what about green?"

and really get the most out of your watermelon?

We have been getting the leftovers from school lunch at the kinder to feed the ducks. With 210 kids it's quite a bit of food each day. The biggest pickling container they sell 3/4 full.

It's really interesting seeing what goes in the leftovers bucket though and today the variety of watermelon rinds made me giggle. Takes all kinds, hey?

And how do ducks eat their watermelon?


Chopped up, put through the blender and mixed with rice bran which is actually a pretty big job.

But that's another story for another day.

Definitely all the red, and sometimes, if I'm bored, right to the green outer skin :) Hub calls me a kabutomushi.

What fun, let's see...both Branden and Noah eat watermelon to about the picture 2nd one from the top. And as for me...(hold on let me go and see the pics again)...I eat mine to somewhere between pic #2 and pic #3 (from the top as well). I eat a little more red then pic 2 but not as much as pic #3. So somewhere in between those 2 for me. : ) However I want to add....when I was a little kid...I was always curious and so, I have eaten the white many times and I have even tried the green too. : )

With missing front teeth, it must be hard for Amy to get down to the rind. M needs her corn off the cob and melon off the rind this year, four loose teeth and one missing.
