Just in the past couple of weeks, the good crops of one of my favorite Summertime treats, watermelon, have just started to arrive in Connecticut grocery stores. We're still a few weeks away from Connecticut-grown watermelons, our season runs August - October. There are more than 1,000 varieties of the delicious fruit growing around the world, and as the name says, They're made of 92% water.
