Got into gardening with lock down like the whole world it seems. Small back yard, so everything I grow is in pots, having a go and involving the kids.

Citrullus Lanatus

Well it got some red in there. Our only melon the kids shared it. They said it tastes like melon a little bit, but I tried it and it's better than it looks. #watermelon #gyo

Looks like a monster face looking back at whoever is holding it. See it, big smile with sharp teeth and eyes. I’m not use to food looking back at me. Lol 😂

2 decent sized ones getting bigger and 2 smaller ones. I've tried to only leave one main watermelon on each plant since they don't have much room. Please ignore the grass I won't let my partner move it, as the little tendrils have a nice hold on the grass there. Lol #watermelon #gyo #potgrown #nomowingheredonthurtmyplant

I'm surprised any have grown at all. Lol not the same one as last pic but a few on there getting bigger. I did use someone's suggestion to paint brush the flowers but you know im happy ones got even this big. :) #sugarmelon #gyo #potgrown #rootbound

It was yourself @mehul22 who told me to paint it. :)

@mandajayne I think it was @akshat who told you to paint brush the flowers. 😊

So it was. I'm hopeless, wouldn't remember my head if not for it being stuck there. :)

Baby watermelon. I hope it gets big enough to eat. There's 4 in a pot and I'm pretty sure they are not going to have the room to grow properly. I can hope. :) #watermelon #gyo

Pollinate the female flower by the pollen from male flower to get a healthy fruit

You can use a paint brush for it or just simply pluck the male flower to pollinate them
