For zones 3-12 watermelon are a staple in your Organic garden and prefer full sun. These can be started 4 weeks early in pots but we find they do best if direct sown in the garden in the spring after your last frost. Wait for the temperatures to be a consistent 70-80 degrees, for a couple of weeks, before direct sowing in the garden. If starting seeds early in pots, gradually expose the seedlings to the weather for short periods of time before planting in the ground. Watermelons need to have consistently moist soil. In the spring work your garden soil 6" deep and sow seeds 1/2" deep and 15"-18" apart. Water from the base and not from overhead. Planting at least 2 melon plants for cross pollination is suggested for a generous harvest, but it is not required. As the vines mature, use a layer of mulch between the vines and the soil to prevent rotting.
