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

        This is my second purchase this year. They hold my melons and squash off the ground and I see no rot from the overly wet weather we have been having. I purchased one of the sets to give as a gift to a fellow gardener who was impressed by them.
