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

My watermelons look great and not one has started rotting since I got these melon cradles! I'm so glad I bought 2 packages because I think I'm going to need them! I will definitely buy these again and have already recommended them to friends!!! They also make it easy to turn the melons without them rolling back over since the cradles are cupped.

These things keep your melons bug and rot free. The melons are kept up off the ground and ripped all the way around.

      I have not yet used these cradles because my growing season has just started. I can tell that they will definitely do the job of keeping the squash off the ground. They are a good size to fit in my small garden.

      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.
