       Watermelon is summer's most popular vegetable. It is part of the cucumber, pumpkin, and squash family. The average American eats 15 pounds of watermelon a year and these juicy favorites are 92 percent water.
       The idea for a Frisbee came from college students  
tossing empty pie plates from the Frisbie Baking Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut. 
       The birth flowers for August are the gladiola and the poppy.
