Seed Starting, Minnesota Midget Melon

Today I started 6 seeds for Minnesota Midget Melon, a very early and small canteloupe. The vines are also compact, and will grow in containers. This heirloom canteloupe is 4-7″ in diameter, and about half a pound. Each vine should produce 6-8 canteloupe. If so, I will meet my desire for… melons!

Minnesota Midget Melons sprout quickly, in 3-10 days, and will be planted out in late April or early May, since I am having an exceptionally warm late winter this year.

in case of late frosts, I will start 6 more seeds in mid-April.

I will likely keep these in pots.


About rebeccatreeseed

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists. Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name. I am of Northern European descent, with a quarter Irish.quarter thrown in. I suspect I was a product of northern invaders into Ireland into Ireland. but hard to say since DNA disproved the family story about Apache blood! I have found some odd ancestors to replace them. Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife. I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.
