Watermelons

I planted my watermelons approx. 60 days ago and there are lots of buds, but I have no melons yet. Have I done something wrong? Lots of buds though.

Have you seen bees flying in or around your garden? Must have those "flying pollinators" around to have fruit. If you have had flowers for 2-4 weeks but no signs of melons forming, it may be that bees have not pollinated the female flowers. I have cantaloupes that I have to manually pollinate because there are no signs of bees where I live.
