It’s time to clear out all the seedlings from my coldframe to make room for my Melon plant. Most seedlings have been planted out but there are still a few left. From bottom to top there is Drunken Housewife Lettuce, some Greyhound Cabbage, and a solitary Courgette plant. Once they’re planted out in the garden then I can transfer my Melon plant in.
The seedlings you can see in the top of the frame are too small to transplant yet but will make their exit soon. My Melon is the variety Ogen. I’ve grown it from seed and I have one back up incase it doesn’t thrive. It will spend the rest of the summer in the coldframe with the lid propped open. Hopefully, this will create the right conditions to produce two or three ripe Melons. Fingers crossed!
Good luck! I look forward to hearing how you get on. Fingers crossed for some warm weather for you!
Best of luck, if you’re successful I may have a go at one next year.
