  1. Haha, yes and no! Some of it gets tossed, some of it gets eaten by N, and I eat a little of it (typically the fruit.)

  2. How long did it take you to eat an 11 kilogram watermelon? It would take me a few days and I love watermelon.

  3. We still have about 5 kg of it left. We would have finished it in a few days if it hadn't been for all the peaches. My MIL has been here and she bought peaches nearly every day. We like peaches better.

  4. Your drop-off logs crack me up. That's an awful lot of watermelon! Do you have an ice-cream maker? Watermelon ice is good…

  5. Ciao Karen – Love reading your blog and love the warm rose background color. Would you mind telling me what color it is or the RGB numbers. Would be a great color in one of our rooms. I know a very random request but just love the color!Megan in Liguria :)

  6. Megan, sorry I've taken so long to answer you. (In my defense, it's August.) The rgb code is: #cca799. (I've been thinking of painting our bedroom a similar color, though slightly browner, so I didn't think it was a random or strange request at all.)
