great idea

By s

Comments about : Melon and Squash Cradles, Set of 6:

I've tried all kinds of ways to keep melons from resting on the ground: hooks from which I've hung cradles to suspend the melons/squash, home made platforms, etc. This is a great idea. They're durable and will last for several seasons. Wish I'd seen these years ago.

      Comments about : Melon and Squash Cradles, Set of 6:

      I like the product, it is small and lightweight but will not know if it prevents wildlife yet from bothering it but should prevent produce from rotting.

        Seem sturdy

        Comments about : Melon and Squash Cradles, Set of 6:

        While I have not used these yet they seem sturdy and we're easy to insert into my ground when testing them out. Our CA sun will be the determining factor at summers end. Hopefully they will survive our intense heat by being somewhat shaded by the vines.
