Yes. Mature leaves come first in some quantity of course. Be prepared with something, straw or compost or even sand, to put under the fruit so they sit upon a well drained bed.

Did not log the date in my journal when they flowered but it seems it was at least 6 weeks after they were transplanted into
the growing area.

I grew watermelons last summer for the first time.
I remember them taking a few months to really get going, to the point that I was wondering if they were going to be successful at all.
Once they take off though they grow quick!
I had trouble judging when the fruit was ready for harvest. My tip is to leave them longer than you think.
