Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Three ideas for putting up the season's juicy melons: Gingery pickled rinds, watermelon syrup and dried watermelon.

I started my garden by sowing seven dozen seeds (tomatoes, melons, tomatillos, carrots, sour gherkins) in cardboard egg cartons inside my NYC apartment.
Melon Jam? Why not? Canteloupe and peaches are such a nice color combo and toasted pine nuts bring the whole endeavor to a new high. You won't find this in a Smucker's jar.
