Re: How to Grow Watermelons

I grow 3 watermelons, Crimson Sweet, Ali Baba (seeds are hard to find but once I found a few have saved them, and the last one is Black Diamond. I usually plant in rich compost with mineral worked into each planting spot. Water the ground well before transplant, then mulch heavily with wood chips, and cut the water off them them last week of July. They ripen at different times so we have melon from August thru Mid- Oct although if frost threatens i harvest and refrigerate

The Ali Baba's are stunning,
