Step 1: Pick a Melon

One of the best ways to start this project is by taking a trip to your local watermelon patch to pick a melon. If you don’t have a patch near your home, you can pick up an organic watermelon at your local farmer’s market, roadside stand or grocer.

Step 2: Cut it Up

Use your knife to cut your watermelon into large chunks (adults only), saving the rinds for your composter.
