That’s all you can do, unless you throw it away, or suffer through eating it, because you paid for it.

Steve loves watermelon. A couple years ago, the grocery had great watermelons all summer. Steve bought one – small one – and sometimes not so small – every day. Lots of people did. That large bin was being refilled often.

So he brings home a watermelon the other day. It was juicy, but not sweet. Not good. I juiced it and wow do you get a lot of juice from juicing watermelon. But the texture, eating it, was like it had been frozen or picked too early, but no it wouldn’t have been mushy, I don’t think.

Anyway, I’m noticing that produce isn’t looking so good right now – even carrots are gnarly, all different sizes in one bag, even from BoltHouse. I have to pick through stuff even at the high end stores. Don’t know what that’s the cause of, but hope it improves as the summer moves forward.

I added a little beet juice for sweet and we enjoyed it. Now that doesn’t mean I’m going to shop for dud watermelons. They’re too heavy to carry home anyway. I can do it, but I can’t get much else, and I have to balance the weight of my bags, so my shoulders don’t dislocate.

Right now I won’t take a risk on another dud.

I’m thinking cantaloupe. I’ll wait till they look better.
