    I only fertilize mine one time when they are about 3 inches tall with 19-19-19.It may help to add a small amount of nitrogen when they start to vine.

    Scott, the best way to tell if a watermelon is ripe without cutting it, is to look at the bottom and you should see a yellow area that is covered with a sbunch of small black spots. The spots are a mildew that usually comes with the rind getting ripe. Vern
