Why are my new watermelons turning black and going away??
I have 8 Sugarbaby watermelon vines, in 12" containers, about 8 ft long and wrapped around those wire cones for support. They are all producing lots of yellow flowers for over a month now, but as soon as the little watermelons form from the flowers, they turn black and disappear....all except for one which is growing well , the size of a butternut squash. What's up with the rest and how can I save my watermelons. (Next year I will use bigger containers)
