Clever ways to cut a watermelon

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

On the weekend I shared a picture of my sliced up watermelon and received a few enquiries.  When I get home from the grocery store I cut up most of our fruit and vegetables, which you can read more about here and here.  Basically I find that by pre-cutting the fruit and vegetables it is less likely going to go to waste as it is conveniently ready for when I am hungry, wanting to pack kids lunch boxes or making dinner.  Plus when I am feeling a little peckish I don’t opt for something naughty and sweet as the fruit is ready to eat.

There are many different ways to cut a watermelon, I've put together a collection of some very creative ways.

There are many different ways to cut a watermelon so I have gathered some ideas for you below.  At our local grocery store our watermelons come quartered, I slice mine similar to the image below.

So many great ideas, thanks!

I just want you to know that the ‘home’ link, and the link in the logo takes readers back to December last year. The only way I found this most recent post was by typing in Feb 2015, and clicking on the next post link at the bottom of each post… I love your blog but can’t afford to waste time searching through weeks of old posts to find a new one.

Hi Donna, I’m sorry to hear it isn’t working for you. I have double checked from our end and everything seems to be running ok. I hope it works for you in the future. Thank you for letting me know though. ~ Kate
