I live with a thief!

I can only assume it’s been years in the making but there is now a watermelon patch next door.
When you drive by you can see about 8 of these beauties just lounging out in the sun.
I assume it was from years of use heaving our left overs out into the bush is where the seeds came from, maybe birds and lizards moved them in a bit further, but it appears that once the jungle was removed and the sunlite hit them BOOM, watermelon patch. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.
Well today Mrs. Barn could not stand it anymore. She snuck over and pinched a melon.
As in she kyped one, not to be confused with her over there pinching a melon, plopping a squat, dropping a load etc.
Yes I scolded her cause at least she could have snagged a big one!
