You might remember this post last month when I talked about my excitement in finding a small watermelon that was just the right size for our small family of two. It lasted us a few days with none of it going to waste.
So you can imagine my glee in finding a bin filled with extra tiny watermelons, less than half the size of those others, in Chinatown the other day. They were adorable and I just had to buy one to try it out.
Verdict? This small melon cut in half made a very nice breakfast for two. It was perfectly ripe and very good. Really is tasted exactly like any other watermelon, but there were no leftovers to put away and just a couple of rinds to throw into the compost.
It is produced by a company called Little Bear and not only was this wee watermelon tiny and tasty, it was also ethically farmed. It was grown in Texas USA by a company called J&D Produce, who provide their workers with above-average pay for the type of work they do, plus they also give them benefits and health care plans too.
Yes, it’s the small things in life that make it good, right?
I hope you’re having a good Friday. I’ve been to the thrift store this morning and found some good things, which I’ll show you soon.
Thanks for taking a look.
