We are trying to grow watermelons for the first time here in PA. We have some small melons on the vine now but I'm not sure how they are going to be. Thanks for all the tips on growing melons.

Every year but this, I've tried growing melons and had no success. Next year I'll try this method as nothing beats fresh melon.


Good luck with this approach - it sounds like a winner!

One year when I had similar issues with fruits being "attacked from below", I set them up on leftover yogurt lids, coffee cans and the like, to keep them from being in direct contact with the soil.

And then I had one million cantaloupe. Really. It was divine.
