We are planting melons today, the wind from yesterday is no more so it is a perfect day. We transplant melons at this time of the year because the soil is still too cold for the seeds to germinate fast. We do not use seed coated with fungicide so our seeds are naked and unprotected when the enter the soil. We have to make sure that the conditions are just perfect. later in May we can plant raw seed. These plants were organically grown for us by Headstart Nursery in Gilroy.
