I live in the Chicago area and planted watermelons late may does anyone know how to tell when I should pick them. They are of the Sugar Baby variety. Already have wasted 2 of them.

On plant Sugar Baby Watermelons



Wait until one or two tendrils near the fruit have withered, and then thump it. If it sounds like your head, it's too early. If it sounds like your belly, it's too late. If it sounds like your chest, it's just right!
