Q.Growing Watermelons

Anonymous added on July 23, 2011 | Answered

I am growing watermelons for the first time. I have one melon that is actually at good size now. I am wondering if I should just let the melon lay on the ground or do I need to put something under the melon?

The following article(s) should be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/watermelon/growing-watermelon.htm

Typically, watermelons can remain on the ground without any problems; however, many people prefer to place the young melon on a piece wood (piece of plywood, 2x10, etc.) to keep it off the ground, where in some locations or overly wet conditions, the melons can be susceptible to pests or rotting.
