p.s.-- I think if you turn them regularly & put hay underneath each melon, you don't get such an obvious yellow spot. ;)

I'm sad I only got 50%... I LOVE watermelon, and eat an embarrassing amount during the summer. Its origins in the Kalahari desert is interesting; while I was in Morocco, I thought it was so strange that so many people sold watermelons by the side of the road. But I suppose it makes sense if a desert is their native environment.
