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.  ebstone-organics-surestart,corona-174-forged-bypass-pruner,ebstone-chickenmanure,landmaster-weedfabric,ebstone-organics-tomatoevegetablefood
