Anybody have any tips for gardening?

Posted under Home gardening tips | No Comment

Me and my sister are having a garden competition at home. We are growing watermelons, honeydew melon, and corn. Anyone have any tips for how to grow these things? I have heard that watermelons grow well in sand. Is that true? If it is, how do you do that?

An excellent competition trick, is actually a Native American one. Go to a bait shop and ask if you can have some dead minnows. Dig a hole 6" deep and a couple feet in diameter. Place a dozen minnows in the hole and cover with 5" of soil. Now, plant 3-4 corn seeds, 3-4 squash seeds and 3-4 runner bean seeds and cover with the remaining inch of soil. These were called "The Three Sisters" by many tribes but your melons should love it as well. And melons do well in sand if they get enough water. RScott
