Did you happen to water during the daytime, sunlit hours? Did you spray, or did your neighbor spray anything recently?

Yes, water can magnify the light rays and result with damage to the plant... try watering the soil, not the plants, that will cut down on some of the damage.
What did you or the neighbor spray?

Oh dear! Well, may want to rethink that activity so close to the vegetable garden...

Let us know if the problems on the watermelon persist.

Yes I know Mad Question? Could MIracle Grow have caused it. I used it the other day and was just wondering. Plus MG would probably harm worms which are in my sfg? LEARN LEARN LEARN
