Melon and Squash Garden Cradles...oh I get it...now I'm trying to think of how to MAKE the cradles (maybe upside down milk gallon or laundry detergent jug -- cut and slit)
Melon and Squash Cradles, Set of 6 by Marchioro Spa. $9.95. By elevating cantaloupes, honeydews, small watermelons and squash up off the ground, these ingenious cradles allow air to circulate, promoting even ripening and minimizing rot. If you've been disappointed by misshapen melons and squash, or fruits that rot before they ripen, these cradles are for you! Long-lasting and reusable, the cradles nest for compact off-season storage.
A great garden idea.
