      A story about a fruity vegetable?! I knew California was plagued by droughts, I didn't know that not so long ago, entire lakes dried up in the span of a few years by human intervention. Andrea Castillo makes a good case to read some more "seasonal" episodes.

        Reading about water issues in California always freaks me out. I have a hard time imagining settling down anywhere where access to such a crucial resource is so fraught with problems. Always makes me appreciate the east coast even more.

      Good read, I had no idea the watermelon originated in Sudan. This will be a fun tidbit to keep in my back pocket for the summer get togethers.

        Me neither! I can only imagine what it would be like to subsist on watermelon for all your water.

      This is indeed an article all about watermelons. Way more interesting than I was expecting!
