Sure, honey dew melons are always good, but have you tasted one vine-riped in the garden? Well, this is your year. Plant them and you'll be amazed how great they can be!
When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow
seeds in the late spring when soil has warmed. For an earlier crop, start
seeds indoors 4-5 weeks before planting outdoors. For best results, loosen
soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth with rake.
Firm soil over seed and keep moist.
Care: Keep soil moist and fertilize monthly.
Harvesting: Pick when the blossom end is slightly springy when pressed and a sweet aroma develops.
