This season I’m getting serious with growing my own food. In this garden bed, I planted watermelon and cantaloupe. Last year, zucchini grew well here but took awhile to get the squash. I really hope this works out well.
The watermelon seeds were started indoors in early April. It took nearly a month to germinate. I’m glad I started that seed early because now it has true leaves and is in the ground.
I’m also planting cantaloupe in the same bed. I read that these can be grown on a trellis or tomato cage. I have decent size tomato cages, so I’ll try that. I’ll need to create a sling or netting to hold the melons on the cage wire.
