      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.
