Hi It's March and my kids planted some seeds early this year. The vine has been taking over since late Jan and now we have a watermelon which i think is nearly ready to be picked. it's been growing rapidly for a month or so and the growth has slowed down this last week. We only have 1 melon on the vine - is this normal for sydney?
