Instructions: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Take care not to disturb the roots when transplanting. Or, sow a few seeds over a hill 9 to 12 inches tall and 2 feet across. When plants are 3 inches tall, thin by cutting to 3 plants per hill. Use a balanced fertilizer to increase yield.

Suggestions: Choose a site with good drainage, good air circulation, and full sun. Watermelon is ready to harvest when the skin on the underside turns yellow and when a thump with knuckles produces a hollow sound.
