National Watermelon Day celebrates one of the most versatile and refreshing summer treats from the garden. Watermelons are typically 92% water, so chilling watermelon before serving is like icing down a sweet glass of water. Serve sliced, use a baller to add flavor to summer salads, or cut into chunks and serve with pieces of aged gouda or goat cheese. For recipes and more information about watermelon, visit
