Tiny Sugar Baby by awesome43 Tiny Sugar Baby by awesome43
I found this tiny water melon growing in one of my back yard gardens. It has been about 2 weeks since it emerge from it's parent plant. It is a Sweet Baby seedless watermelon. They grow to about 6 to 8 pounds full size. Because this is my first time growing these, I had no idea what they were going to look like as babies. I was amazed to see how perfectly formed it was and had all the stripes and green color variation so early in it's development. I decided to compose this shot using one of my small gold bracelets to demonstrate how tiny it really is. Melon measures 1 1/4 inch across, bracelet measures 2 1/3 inch across it's widest part 
This photo was edited in Photoshop 5.5. Here is the link to the original if you want to compare the 2 versions. sta.sh/0ihu829nwro

oooOH how cool is this??!! :hug:
You did a great job to demonstrate how they are when they first grow,
and a nice editing job, too- I checked the original too! :)

I love seedless watermelon... I think it's interesting how they grow round, but seed watermelons grow oval!

I've grown them before, and I think I am doing it next year, again.

I wish you much luck!

Thank you very much sweet :iconteaplz: I love the seedless watermelons as well not only because I don't have to deal with all the seeds but because there are much smaller in size than the seeded ones. These particular ones are very sweet hence their name.

I am happy you took the time to compare the 2 versions. I am pleased about the final version. I am learning Photoshop a little at a time and encouraging comments such as yours give me the push to keep working at it. 

There are 2 :iconmelonplz: now out of 4 plants. Hopefully the other plants will produce very soon. They are just starting so I am pretty confident that there will be many more. Tiny Sweet Sugar Baby is about double it's size already and the new one is about the size it was when I took the photo and just as cute I might add. They are scattered in sprouting times although they were planted at the same time. Mother Nature has he ways and nobody is going to rush her. LOL.
