Watermelon seeds
« on: December 07, 2017, 01:39:32 PM »
     Looking for a few watermelon seeds for my 2018 garden. What to give it another try,1st time wasn't that great. Better soil conditions and lots more room. Worth another try. Thank you.

How many seeds are you looking for? I have a few types but only a few seeds.
I have

and some seeds I saved from a sweet grocery store melon, it's a small icebox melon.

I plant sugar baby-the vines run only about 6 ft or so, the melons are small about 6 lbs or so, which is plenty for me.  They do tend to have a lot of seeds, though.
