Just checking in to see how everyone’s watermelon carvings are coming for the National Watermelon Carving Contest. If you’re not familiar with the contest, here’s a recap in 50 words or less:
Carve a watermelon basket (nothing fancy, maybe something like this). Send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org before August 31. I’ll pick four of the best. Readers will check them out and pick their favorite here on the blog in August. The winner will receive a prize which will be announced next week. Official rules can be found here.
By now, you should at least have an idea of what type of basket you want to carve. If not, don’t sweat it, just check out some of the designs on thefor inspiration.
