So my husband had our daughter plant watermelon seeds. We were surprised when the plants grew. We put them in the ground, and out pops up a watermelon. I have never grew one before so wanted to get tips on how to care for it. Do I give the plant a lot of water, do I need to protect the watermelon from bugs, the heat, ..... Any info. would be greatly appreciated. We are hoping this watermelon grows at least to a medium size, and we will be able to enjoy it.
