When the Summer starts to get close, there are many people who love to sit back in there garden and enjoy a nice slice of sweet and juicy watermelon. Purchasing large watermelons from the your local store is one option but what you could do instead is grow your own personal crop to pick anytime you please.

Sweet, juicy homegrown watermelons capture the magic of summer with explosive taste that puts store-bought melons to shame. Like their cantaloupe cousins, watermelons demand 2 to 3 months of heat to produce ripe fruit, which makes growing them in northern regions challenging, but not impossible.

By using plastic mulch to warm soil and floating row covers to trap warm air near plants, gardeners in any part of the country can experience the homegrown goodness of watermelons.
