I'm in zone 5. I have my potatoes - purple and red - beans, peas, onions, scallions, romaine, and zucchini planted. Those just grow for me, very effortless. I concentrate on everything sitting on a 6' table under my picture window and growing lights. I planted the tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, annual herbs, and luffas out for my birthday - May 16th - two years ago and it snowed on them! I wait for Memorial Day now!
Having never tried broccoli, I'm letting the seedlings get very large before putting them out. Probably too cautious on my part.
Like you, ATS pics confound me. All this talking about plants and no pics.... Oh well.
Since seedless watermelons require the presence of seeded varieties to pollinate their flowers and set fruit, mark the seedless plants early in the year so you know which type you are harvesting.edit on 5/3/2013 by seentoomuch because: (no reason given)
I don't know if beets grow in your zone but my grandmother always planted beets in between her carrot rows. It does something to help them along.
Yes you do need a seeded melon plant or two to grow seedless melons
