Lots of blooms no fruit

I'm growing American Melons, and they're absolutely *covered* in blooms. And have been for a few weeks now. But I don't have any fruit yet. Should I be hand pollinating? I tried that with the first few blossoms and it didn't work.

RE: Lots of blooms no fruit

That's what they do. Until you get both male and female flowers together at the same time (and bees come), you'll have this condition.
