Growing Watermelon From Seed
I just moved to a house with lots of garden space so this is my first ever time trying to grow watermelons (or much else) from seed. I planted the seeds on Easter weekend in a slightly raised bed and waited till the ground warmed, but still nothing has happened. The carrots planted just a foot away on the same day have been up almost a week. Daytime temps have been in the 70's and 80's for a couple weeks now, with nighttime temps usually staying in the upper 60's and they are in full sun. Shouldn't the watermelons have sprouted yet or am I just trying to rush things?
I am zone 5, Mid-Michigan and the watermelons are Sugar Baby.
Thanks so much!
