This blog is going to be short and sweet. Went to check on my watermelons yesterday. Grabbed one to turn it over and check the underside for that nice yellow color and yes…there she was…a black widow spider.

I’m thankful for three things:

1) That I have watched enough documentaries with my husband to know what one looks like
2) That I had gloves on
3) That she didn’t bite me because my gloves were not thick ones

That ended my day in the garden about five minutes after I got there. I don’t even remember if the watermelon was ripe yet. In fact, my husband may have to go harvest that watermelon…and all others for that matter!

Until next time….if there is one…..
