Here is our new melon patch. We planted the Stars and Moon watermelon along with the cantaloupes and they are happily chugging along. We moved the patch to a place with soil we had enhanced with compost and green cover crops. We also buckled down for the unbearable heat and started watering as needed instead of doing rain dances.
Also- the worm bin sprouts more seeds then anything. Every time I go to throw more food scraps in- there are hardy starts sprouting from the dirt. I dug two melons out and am going to try a late melon transplant. Next time I sift through the worm castings- im going to use 1/2 worm castings, 1/2 potting soil to start my seeds and see if i get better results.
