has anyone of you tried growing watermelons before? while i haven't tried growing them, i have fond of memories of watermelons (back in my childhood) lying in our garden soil,just a few feet from our yellow bell tree.

my mother said they just accidentally grew there 'coz she just threw some seeds of watermelons to the earth, only half-hoping that they would grow. okay, so it wasn't really an accident, but still, she didn't give it much attention so it was really a surprise to us when they suddenly sprouted from the earth.

do you guys know some careful considerations in growing watermelons? i'd love to try growing them in my own garden now.
