Mother always said "Don't play with your food" but hey, her food has already been played with by hundreds of different people before it got to her so why not play with ours a little bit, bring out that fruity fun within all of us.
It's not too hard to get hold of a Melon, in fact some of us were actually born with two Melons, no I'm just joking, we're not carving up any of those, we'll try & keep it vegan here, I don't think many of us dream of paleo cannibalism. Let me correct that *Any of us.
So anyhow, I'm sure you all have a knife, not for killing people with but more for chipping & chopping up some juicy melons, getting playful, getting creative, perishable artwork in a medium so vegetative.
Since as humans, we are a breed of creative minds & there is so much we can do with Melons, ask some teenage boys, they'll tell you.
You've probably cut your melon into slices, cut your Melons into squares, cut your melon straight out of the shell & even cut your melon into balls, so why not carve into your Melon, a pretty pattern or a face, or the 30BaD logo, that'd just be ace.
Don't forget to stock up with a few melons as I have a feeling some may be killed in action, brutally knived by a low fat raw vegan. But remember, though a few melons may not make it, they died for a good cause and their enzymes will live on, So you can eat them up, less waste, more taste, YumMM!

I am not expecting Pablo Picasso from you, those who have created the photos in the links above could of had years of practice, nor do I expect to see bright green pumpkins, but I know we can all create something great & don't try and be a perfectionist, if it looks bad, show us, we won't judge, you've tried, showing & sighing is better than hiding & crying. If you make it, we have to see it!
So let's get carving!
Here is a big shout out to Cantaloupe, Charentais, Galia, Honeydew, Santa Claus, Watermelon & others who made this possible.
PS: I'll try and find a prize but I'm sure the pride is quite a reward in it's self, plus it is fun.
