Container watermelons not lookin' so good
The bad news is that my container watermelons could be looking a lot more lush. The vines seem short and the leaves seem small. I've grown them before, in the ground, and I know how big the plants can get. I've seen pictures of others container watermelons and they look better than mine. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've got 2 plants along with 2 muskmelon plants all in a 30 gallon container, in 511. Ironically the muskmelons are growing better, even thought the medium is acidic, and the watermelons are the ones that are supposed to like it more acidic. They have plenty of sun, water, and food. I didn't thnk that space was a problem as I've grown them crowded together before with good results. The good news is that I do have 4 watermelons set. One is about the size of a softball, and the others are smaller. I could post a photo if necessary.
