All that grew were huge plants with tons of small purple pods smaller than a pea. Needless to say, it was my first attempt.

If you started your watermelon plants a little late and your vine is still alive, you could still have a few very small watermelons. Most varieties take about 120 days to mature (from your description, it sounds like you may have planted Sugar Baby watermelons?).
