BP, you anticipated me. I've been helping fla_beach_bum out because I have ulterior motives, hoping to learn from the advice given in this thread
Right now, I have four Sugar Baby plants (I think that's the kind you recommended last year) and three Burpee Fordhooks. Both varieties aren't all that huge and can be slung. One of the questions I wanted to ask has to do with just that, the A-frame trellis. If you could take pictures as you do each step while you are making them, that would be very nice for me
The other question I want to ask has to do with spacing. I'm toying with putting the four Sugar Babies in one half of an 8 x 4 raised bed and the three Fordhooks in the other half. Will that work, or is that too many watermelon plants in one bed, even if I do use a trellis?
Sorry for horning on on your thread, fla_beach_bum. I've been watching and waiting for someone to come right out and discuss ideal spacing!
