Tip for growing bigguns

StudpossumAugust 13, 2004

I've found that those "cut-it-to size" cheap air conditioner filters are GREAT for keeping large fruits a little up off the ground and make a pretty good barrier against ground critters. You canc find them at Walmart and such, they come in like 24" x 36" sheets, they look like a giant blue Scotchbrite pad or something, and they're reusable and pretty cheap.

Nice Idea! I've got a natural watermelon holder. I'm using a shrub to support the melon off the ground. Workin Great. I hope it doesnt break the branches off.. =)
