Underside of melon leaf.
What are these insects on watermelon leaves?

Watermelon    Oklahoma, USA

This is the underside of a watermelon leaf. The black specks are not happy in the sunlight and are leaving as best they can. I did find a lady bug tending them on another leaf. The top of the leaf has a shiny substance on it, honeydew? If not aphids, what then? Thanks.

How do I know when watermelons are ripe?

Watermelon    South Carolina

I'm growing sugar baby watermelons for the first time this year and I would like to know how I can tell they are ready to pick? The melons are about 4" or so across but I thought that the tendrils were meant to die back? Does this mean they aren't ready yet?

When I transplant my watermelon seedlings is it necessary to mound the soil into a hill or can I just plant them into level soil? I wish I had planted them directly into the garden to be honest but what's done is done and I need to make the best of it. Tips for transplanting welcome.
