I started 'Sugar Baby' watermelon using the PAPER TOWEL METHOD of GERMINATION about 6 days ago. Six out of 6 seeds germinated.  I planted them yesterday in 6" pots. I used a mix of topsoil, Happy Frog mix and my worm castings.  Water them in and placed the pots in a CLEAR TOTE with a heat mat.  I keep them outside on sunny days and at night bring them in with the heat mat on. 

I grew these last year.  I wasn't too successful.  One tiny watermelon the size of a softball.  I am thinking that it didn't get enough sun.  I need to find a sunny spot where the critters will not have easy access.  That is challenging.
