Watermelon Sprouting

gardening, growing watermelon, sprouts, indoor seedlings

I really enjoyed growing my own strawberries and tomatoes last year.  So much so, that when I saw some seed kits at the local store I decided to buy some.  There were many offered (tomatoes, strawberries, bananas, zucchini and watermelon)

I decided that I would try the watermelon and strawberries (I enjoyed the berries last summer, but the plants produced very small berries - definitely not enough to replace buying them throughout the summer).

I bought the kits last Monday, got them ready on Wednesday and today, a week later noticed that the watermelon had started to sprout! The berries have as well, but they are so tiny it wasn't showing up in a picture.

Do you grow any of your own food?


  1. I don't grow any good but I did start some flowers from seeds this year to see how I made out. Have several plants that will be ready to go in the ground once the weather warms up! (Judy Cowan)

  2. I have a garden every year. Now that The Kids are older (4), they love to help out. I get so much joy from watching them pick and eat the vegetables. I grow; tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, cabbage, beets, peas and beans. I grew zucchini one year but there was so much (16 plants) that I had a hard time giving it away. Looking forward to reading about your successes.

  3. Amazing, we dug some compost into a wheel barrel only to come back a couple of days later and there were small melon plants growing, we transplanted them. We will have to wait and see what they turn out to be, right now they are just mystery melons
