Road Trippin' Seedling
We started 2 Malali watermelon seeds and they sprouted! We were going to plant them, but then I thought I should read up on how much space and what kind of care they would need in the garden first. Since we are growing watermelons vertically on trellises, we can only grow small (less than 10lb) fruits. The Malali, an Israeli variety, grows in the hot desert and yields 10-22lb fruits. Oops! So we took it on a road trip yesterday. We gave the seedling to Zach's mom who has a large field. She will be growing Malali watermelons this year. As for us, we bought ourselves some new seeds. We'll be growing some little baby flower watermelons instead!
