Hmmmmmm......sounds like a possibility.  Maybe next summer I'll try
it.  Part of the problem is with the watermelon itself.  Believe it or
not, it is, along with pineapple and banana, one of the highest fruits
in sugar content.  But maybe the rind part wouldn't be quite so bad.

Come next summer, I may give it a whirl...thanks for the idea!!
