Green Thumb Guide

Plant in enriched garden soil 1-2 weeks after last frost. Leave 5'-6' of space between plant. Fertilize when transplanting and when flowers are about to bloom. Water early morning or late evening. Harvest melons when the surface turns a creamy color and becomes slightly soft. Cut from vine with shears to avoid damaging the plant.  greenall-soilbooster,corona-174-straight-snip-pruner,brown-drip-line-1-gph-5-8,dewitt-weed-barrier-fabric-12-year,ebstone-organics-surestart
