Here's mine to get things rolling - because what says summertime more than watermelon?
This giant pile of watermelons were on sale yesterday morning at Tel Aviv's Hatikva Market. But how to choose?
How to know which stall really has the "number 1 watermelon"?
Many of the stalls take one and cut it open to show their customers the quality of their fruit. This one looks good to me, don't you think?
I didn't actually buy one on yesterday's photowalk (you'll be seeing more of that in the days to come - it was good fun and quite a success photographically) because I already had one at home, but ours too was delicious and extra refreshing when we ate it at the pool this afternoon. (As an aside, did you know that Israelis don't generally serve watermelon in slices to eat while the juices run down your chin? Nope, they cut them up into bite-sized chunks and serve them with forks. Often, especially for outdoor meals like our picnics at the pool, they just hand out forks and everyone helps themselves from the communal bowl, one piece at a time. A bit more prep-time up front but a whole lot easier to eat this way.)
How's your summer shaping up so far? We'd love to see what you're up too so jump right in and join the Summer Stock crew!
