    • These Are A Perfect
    • Way To Protect Vegetables

        I am using these to support and protect my vegetables from the dirt and concrete. The support protects from the hot concrete and insects that want to burrow on the vegetables resting on the soil.

              Seems to be working. The pumpkins are off the ground, and away from the pill bugs I am plagued by. Have lost several promising pumpkins to the little devils in the past. I am very hopeful.

                Pros

                • Helps Control Rot
                • Increases Vital Air Flow

                Best Uses

                • Muskmelon Protection

                We use these to elevate our melons instead of a brick or piece of wood. Helps reduce bottom rot here in the humid Florida summer. Only drawback is the weight capacity. Can't use for large watermelons

                          Easy to use, just position under melon, squash, ground fruit, and it cushions off the ground and allows air circulation. Prevents bottom spot rot and Works perfectly.
