Watermelon Porn

This Summer we have had some of the best fruit in recent memory: Nectarines, Peaches, Plums, Cantaloupes and Watermelons all have been exceptionally sweet and flavorful. Apparently all this hot, dry sunny weather is very agreeable to most crops, as the vegetables, especially the Tomatoes also seem better than ever this year.

It's very fashionable these days to make salads with watermelon as a key ingredient, some of them are way over the top, but for me the best way to eat it is chilled from the fridge, slice after dripping slice.

Watermelon is definitely on my last meal on earth list! Of course then there is the sweet meaty cantaloupe...
Farmers tend to sell melons individually this year. A cantaloupe is usually 3 or 4 dollars and a watermelon as pictured above is about 6. The bigger the melon the more expensive it is; my 2 cents is to avoid those melons which are being sold by the pound, as it will end up being far more expensive. And because they are so heavy a lot of farmers don't want to be carrying a bunch home with them after a long day at the market so look for these delicious treats on sale at the end of the day.
