Is there a nice neat tidy way to grow large water melons and keep them off the ground so they dont rot. I want to grow crimson sweet water melons, but I do not have a tiller. How would they do if I grew them in containers lined up on ground cover-----or grow beds. Will the black ground cover be too hot for the melons. Or should I just forget the idea?
I think the watermelons would be too heavy for trellis right-----i would end up with pear shaped melons lol.
Wants to grow a few pumpkin and cantaloupes too.
