I was just wondering... I planted one plant and there's like 8 very small melons on it. Should I cut some of them off? I am worried that with too many they won't grow. Help. Thanks.

It won't hurt the plant to remove some of the smaller fruit, but you might be better off if you remove some of the shoots and female blooms. The watermelons already formed will grow larger with less competition from other fruits.
