Leaves on Watermelons Turning White

I planted some Bonnie Blue crimson red watermelon plants about a week ago. The leaves are turning white on them now. What is the problem?

It sounds like "sunburn". If you did not acclimate the plants to the sun, and planted them directly in the sun, the leaves can suffer. Luckily, the plants should recover. You can always rig up a little sun shade for them (like a tent) for a few days, if they still look to be suffering. In the future, bring the plants home, then put them in a place where they will only get an hour or two of direct sunlight each day, then gradually move them to where they will get more sun, over the course of a week or two (or build them a "tent", and keep them covered for less time each day).
