I will wait to put out my Watermelon plants because I have yet to hoe up a spot for them. But they are doing as far as size, as you can see below. Last month a man plowed a 50+ foot spot across the road from my Grandparent's, which I have designated for Watermelon and corn. I am not too keen that the spot is next to the road where hundreds of logging trucks drive by every week and the plants may be sucking up much of the pollution-- however it's fertile ground that is not being used for anything, and it's the only piece of property (at my Grandparent's) that gets the most sun. Hence the reason for designating the Watermelon and Corn plants in this location.

Of course my lettuce, kale, spinach, peas, and potatoes have been in the ground for a month so they are responding well to this warm and rainy weather.
Have a beautiful Mother's Day!
