|Joseph What nice looking watermelons. I never did buy a watermelon this year that was sweet. They all went out the backdoor and feed the critters. I know it was all from the weather down here and farmers harvesting way to early trying to get the edge on the market, but some things, especially like watermelons, you just can't rush.
For me to try and grow melons, I think I would have to build a simple little cage over the fruits to keep the critters from eating them.
I have seen pics of designs for folks to build trellis to grow watermelons up off the ground, not only to save space, but to help keep critters from getting at them. The vines go every which way up the trellis and around it and as the fruit starts to get big, a piece of wood is added to the trellis to hold the fruits so they don't strain so much from hanging.
