Atomic Seeds

A special opportunity arose from the Nuclear front. We had an opportunity to select seeds to grow at home. Seeds that had been exposed to “Atomic Energy”, ie: radiation. I selected some Watermelon seeds. I was so excited!

I had never grown anything, so I picked out a spot between the sidewalk and the house (under the eaves). I planted my seeds and waited. I don’t know whether I expected them to grow overnight, or glow in the dark. They did neither. In fact, like most plants that are poorly placed and poorly tended, the plants were a total failure.
