July is here, which means the long, hot, dog days of summer are upon us. What is better than a cool slice of watermelon to chase away the heat? For my Popular Parenting Pinterest Pin Picks of the week, here are my top pins inspired by watermelon.
Popular Gardening Pin
I am an avid gardener who is tackling watermelon for the first time this year. Did you know that you can grow square watermelons using a box to shape the fruit? My top watermelon gardening pin is a guide for growing square watermelons from Urban Farmer.
Popular Salad Pin
Watermelon is delicious by itself, but did you know that you can also incorporate this summery fruit into many other refreshing recipes? My top watermelon salad pin is the balsamic watermelon salad from Mom on Timeout.
Popular Grilled Pin
Burgers and hot dogs are another summer staple in my neck of the woods. I love a fresh burger grilled outside over an open flame. Grilled watermelon is also a delicious treat. My top grilled watermelon pin is the honey grilled spicy watermelon from Stagetecture.
Popular Drink Pin
What better way to cool down from the heat of the summer than a cold, refreshing drink. My top drink pick of the week is a simple watermelon spritzer from Tasty Kitchen.

Chocolate pairs well with fruits like cherries and strawberries. Did you know that chocolate-covered watermelon is also a delicious and decedent summer treat? My top chocolate-covered watermelon pin comes from Give Recipes.
