Because melons require a lot of heat, we need to start them indoors. Melons do not like to be transplanted so start them off in CowPots. Sow in May for transplanting in June.
Seeds will sprout in 5-10 days.
Water melons from below as much as possible and protect fruit from birds and squirrels with a wire mesh if needed. See link below on growing melons vertically in small spaces.
