How do you know when water melons are ripe and ready to pick?
We picked two already thinging they had long enough to ripen. They tasted great but were still a bit unripe. We have so few we hate to pick additional ones until we're sure they are ripe enough.

Welcome!

There has been a lot of discussion about that this summer. Here is one of the threads - maybe it will help.

The thread "How to tell if my watermelon is ripe" in Ask a Question forum
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
