One of my favorite seed catalogs is The Fragrant Path (P.O. Box 328, Fort
Calhoun, Nebraska 68023, catalog $2).  He carries unusual seeds at modest
prices.  But there's a comment on p. 2 of the catalog that knocked me off
my tuffet:  "Seldom mentioned is the fact that immature watermelons can
also be prepared like summer squash."  Has anyone else ever heard of this?
Has anyone ever tried it?  It might be another alternative to those who
live in squash borer territory if it tastes at all good.  Butter on
watermelon...tch.  Margaret
