definitely a hit in the garden with kids are the melons. it is a life experience to sit down in a garden and consume a just picked Honeydew still warm from the sun
Don’t water your melons as they’re getting to the point of ripening. You’ll just dilute them. Less water when ripening = sweeter melons. The more melons ripening on the vine the less sweet they’ll be because they all have to share the sugars the vine leaves have produced. If you have a couple of melons of around the same size growing on the same plant pinch 2 of them off if you want a really sweet melon.
