First you buy a melon from your farmers market. This one came from Laughing Stock Farms.
Then you lop off both ends. It helps to have a sharp knife. I love my Global.
Cut it in half and lay one (big side) face down.
Cut a wedge.
Make slices all around, like the spokes of a wheel.
Put a bowl on top of the melon. If you have a cute or fancy bowl, the melon will taste better.
