    Cons

      Best Uses

        I've purchased these as gifts and for myself, they work great.
        At first glance my sister and girlfriend looked at me like I was
        crazy for getting them these but as soon as they used them
        the first season I received a thumbs up from both of them.
        This is my third purchase of these.

        melon and squash cradles

        By Mary

        from Sevierville, Tn

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Melons Stay Off The Clay

        Cons

        • Only Hold Up To 8 Lbs

        Best Uses

        • To Keep Melons Clean

        I love the spike bottom. It is so easy to push into the clay. As of now I do not know how to improve on this except on the weight they hold.

                  Works well. Seems sturdy enough for multiple years of use. Smaller than thought but works just fine for large melons.

                        Just put the first 6 of 36 that I purchased into use. These are smaller than I had envisioned and should work with small lopes and squash. However, I am not sure how well they will do with larger items such as watermelons.

                              Have not used them yet, but they look like they will do the trick.. I bought extras to give as a birthday gift to a friend whose melons get waterlogged from laying on the wet ground.

                                    I just put the melon in the cradle as soon as it appears and it does not sit in damp soil.
