Watermelon Day is coming


Join us August 3rd for WATERMELON DAY. This will be our 5th year spreading the watermelon-love to our critters. (Click here to read about our first year). While we won’t be doing watermelon carving, the bears and other animals will be doing watermelon eating.

Of the over 1,200 posts we’ve published, some of my favorites have to do with watermelons:

Watermelons for our Farmyard Friends

Watermelon Storage

Watermelons in the bear pool.

and of course, Watermelon poop  (take a look, it’s kind of cool… and not so gross).
