Watermelon!

Yay! We have our first baby watermelon. What confuses me, however, is that we have TONS of flowers. Why only one (well 2, but the other one was rotten) baby melons?

And… how do I keep the melons from rotting? I read somewhere about putting something under them to keep them off the ground. Suggestions?

    Thanks, Karen, for this great site! Hopefully, I’ll get some melons all the way to maturity!

    I ended up simply putting piles of twigs under each melon. When I water the garden, I water only the rooted end and the melons, thanks to our typical summer drought, stay dry. No melons rotted this season! (now, about the crows..)
