Here is my current attempt to grow Kazak Melons.

41B61944 C79D 4DCC 9348 25299114E165

never grown em before but had several failed attempts at other melons and a couple with a small amount of success...

My main ingredients will be:

D7AF0837 8280 45A0 BAB4 295E472D5AA3
C058BB92 7712 4E14 8FB6 CF68E8E04DB6
4FA5510A 50D6 48FB 8327 98E504C42AE8

With a supporting cast of:

9EEC7680 A436 4C7A 8734 E0FB4D6B8BD4

The beans are yard long bush beans btw.... they will aid fixing N from the air into the soil..

The others are nasturtiums; basil; 2 baby aloes; marigolds 

All considered good companion plants for several fruit and veg..

I’ve also popped a California Poppy (grown from seed) for some added vibrance and colour 

Here is the pot prep:

E69274F6 F3D3 40A7 8587 16C536264908

3-4” of crocks in the bottom of a 50L (15gal) pot.

A2858245 51EE 4D0B B438 FA337D4D9EC9
4299F28F F9CE 467C BE73 FAAC426B97F2
B39D049C 72C5 481E AE80 3D3A961D560B

New bag of compost blended with used sohum (re-amended with life cycle) and some fresh homemade worm cast plus handful of worms (red wrigglers) make up the soil 

BB448DCE 38FD 4C50 BD67 F73675E56518

Prep for planting:

C2347D4F 2441 4521 9406 8EADDC742453
F54B6B8C C5ED 405A AE71 3EB8485C5DBB
E10F3E08 EEBA 45E7 BB35 AAB5DC9F1F36
FE111AC9 CE5F 4C89 9B10 5645DCE375D6

Add plants:

310AA53B B2DE 4E4C B611 2A177C97FA4D

And Fingers crossed 🤞 

Aim: get melons to harvestable size, more than 3 would be great (current PB 😂)

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

Update

All growing well in the conservatory… safe from the uk wild weather swings of late lol

F491BDDD D00D 47CF AF49 A836E7D05743

Growth has now filled out ground level well and is quickly stretching into level 1

69B09404 2311 4698 9ACD 64CFB182DC65
7E57AB37 DB82 4EC1 9C97 F89D44DDF51F

Have given a light spray with washing up liquid solution to drip a few aphids think they were gonna move in … so they got moved on …

Am hoping for sun sun sun as light levels are less thank I’d like but the warmth is consistent at least ..

Was able to take a 4 day break without worrying about watering and look forward to more short breaks this year, particularly one in August 😉 lol

thats all for now… will be back when we get some flowers, then hopefully lovely buds… melon buds lmao 

happy growing all 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

Seeing this and your garlic is makin me want to start growing other things too. How long does things like melons take to grow.

I think smokin too much cannabis could lead to a nasty gardening addiction, its very bad for you LoL

funnily enough most fruiting or flowering plants take 8-16 weeks (just like another sweet smelling crop we all know so well!)

gardening addictions are all the rage now stoots, quickly helping replace things like heroin addiction and also been known to help spice addicts too... not to mention the gazillion other known derived benefits of gardening... (sanity isnt one of them unfortunately though!)

i know which id rather be addicted to given halfa choice !!

if you were ever successful enough to develop a melon-growing/ eating addiction .. well that would be some feat!! and hats off to that person!!

@chillbert Ah I didnt know that, pretty cool how they are all dialed into the same timeline like that, nature's clock i suppose.

Yea theres something relaxing and exciting about it all, when I was about 10ish I had a patch in the garden where I tried growin carrots and peas.haha My mother grew all kindsa veg back then but its been nothing but tatties thats grown there for years now I think.

Likely finding the time to do it is the biggest problem, theres far too much other shit needin to be done that never seems to get done.lol but its likely just the same as startin growin cannabis...... all you have to do is plant the seed and your off.haha Might have to try making a greenhouse here yet Smile

So the melons have both now been ‘topped’ (pinched out) now they’ve reached the top of the support .

Prob too much competition from the nasturtiums has caused them to stretch up too quickly but I just let em do their thing atm

Bottom half above and top half below lol 

F7A281CE 7EB9 4DD3 B824 1EA88FD2EC8B

Am struggling to see an melons making full size this year as yet it hasn’t even started flowering ! Maybe we might get 6-8 weeks of ok temps left this summer which ain’t gonna be enough I think 🤔 

Summer prob arrived too late this year to grow the more sun-needy crops in uk this year.. I can’t see it being a classic yr for growing or farming but this is a sign of our changing climate I think.. 

grand solar minimum here we come ! Lol

thank goodness for indoor grows!

I see youve got her in a multiscrog.haha It looks huge now, what is she coming on for 6 weeks old now. How many melons can you get off a plant, about 10ish or not that many Smile
