Garden Journal: 18 April

Planted more watermelon seeds: another "Bush Sugar Baby" (Burpee) and a Fordhook Hybrid (also Burpee). We don't have sprouts yet, but should soon after an inch and a half of rain followed by sunny, warm weather. Also set out a gourd plant; we're grateful to Julie's mom for alerting us to the fact that gourd, squash and melon plants can cross-pollinate, resulting in flavorless melons. The gourd is planted well away from the watermelons.

Dada's sunflowers continue to thrive.
