Melons are the geodes of the garden: dig them out of the great green leaves and vines and carry them—carefully!—to the kitchen to unlock the fantastic bright treasure that nature created. Luckily, melons form much quicker than gems and are far less rare. Just sow a few melon seeds like you would cucumbers or squash. Choose early and late season varieties to keep your trove chock-full.
