      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

        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.
