Anyone else growing melons in 2013?

8 years ago

Every few years I get bitten by the melon-bug and have to give them a try. This year it's watermelons. A cool... make that cold June sure didn't help. Here's how my 2 plants looked on June 27, at maybe 10 cm tall:

So that was pretty lame and I figured they didn't have a chance, but I'm doing it mostly for fun anyway. But after that hot weather last week, here they are today, 8 days after the previous pic (the brick is only in there for scale). Still a long shot, but at least they are vines now, and maybe with some more hot weather...

Anyone else trying melons, and if so, how are they doing for you?
