First Time Growing Watermelon

Zone dont know Tn | 08nana added on August 15, 2011 | Answered

It was doing great, then all of sudden the end of the watermelon turned brown-not the stem end. Why? Too much water or not enough? I live in Tn. and we have not had much rain, but I watered every day. I have a rain barrel.
