I started the melons in the house maybe three weeks ago and I think we are past the cold weather.
I made up a couple of planter boxes, using up old scrap wood.
I have them up on the compost wall until they get a good start, and then they will go on the ground to the left and I will make up a some lattice for them to climb on.
If I put them on the ground now, the %@!&^@ rabbits would probably eat them down. I just hope the %#*!$@ tree rats don’t get into them either !!!!!
