Four or even five weeks ago now I ordered some Golden Midget watermelon seeds from Riverview Seeds.
Then a couple of days later I was out in the garden with some extra broad bean seeds wondering how or where I could use them.
InspirationThen inspiration and perspiration met.
I'd already spread a bag of fairly fresh horse over an area that need some extra preparation for the coming Spring and Summer with no plan for what I was going to p;ant and grow there.
I roughly turned the manure over into the soil, added a bucket of coffee grounds and bunged the seeds in for a green manure crop.
It didn't matter that much if they failed to germinate or not the soil would still be ready for the watermelon seeds in Spring anyway but now I have the benefit of some extra nutrition from the broad beans.
Now I have the perfect spot for planting my Golden Midget watermelon seeds.
