Spud, I have a wheelbarrow that's more upright. It looks like a 35 gallon garbage can with front wheels. I like it because you don't have to bend over to lift it. I got it at Lowes three years ago for 22 bucks.
Have you seen them?

That is a nice wheelbarrow. I bet it makes gardening chores easier. We got a lot of rain here lately. It will help the plants grow.

I don't think I want to save seeds until I settle on one type of watermelon.  Otherwise, I could end up with some unpleasant tasting watermelon due to cross-pollination.  Am I correct?

Comment by Randall Smith on May 28, 2014 at 9:59am

Yes, my watermelons and canteloupe are doing well, except for a dastardly mole that wanders through the patch. I think, King, the only solution for getting rid of moles is dynamite!

My watermelon seed, Spud, come from last year's watermelon!

King, it looks like your winter temperatures are not as cold as mine, so your ground probably does not get as cold, and warms-up faster than mine.

my melons are out and going strong

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 27, 2014 at 4:08pm

I just ordered Blacktail Mountain and Cream of Saskatchewan, watermelon seeds from Seed Savers.  Both are organic and Heirloom short season melons.

That will make 5 kinds of watermelon and one cantaloupe I'm planting this year.  Don't have enough room inside the fence for that many, so I'll put a couple in the curb area where my apricot tree will be planted and take a chance on them being stolen or smashed.

I'll put a fence around the area, staying away from the curb where people get out of their cars.  That's the excuse the city gave me for requiring me to take down a fence I had there years ago.  They said someone complained they couldn't get out on the curb side.

Comment by Randall Smith on May 27, 2014 at 3:43pm

Chris, Daniel is correct--phlox, which grows as a wildflower around these parts. I didn't plant them.

I'm enjoying radishes, chives, cilantro, and now, strawberries!

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 27, 2014 at 11:50am

I'm planting watermelon seeds in pots this morning.  The soil should be warm enough to transplant them into the garden in about 3 weeks.  They want at least 65 F soil and when I checked soil temperature a few days ago, it was 57 F.

I'm thinking I should put the black garden cloth on my watermelon area right now to warm the soil more.
