transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.
Protect ripening melons from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut
melons carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.

These melons are easy and fun to grow. They're very prolific. It didn't take long at all to have vines full of baby melons. Knowing when to harvest is a breeze. They turn orange and fall off the vine when they're ready. They taste like a cantaloupe, but not as sweet. Tigger melons have definitely earned a place in my garden.
