Call to Action:

When purchasing a watermelon, select one that is ripe.  To select a ripe watermelon, knock on the rind and if you hear a hollow sound, it is ready to eat.  If you hear a solid thud, it is overripe.

And for a bit of trivia, August 3rd was National Watermelon Day!

To your wellness,
