Reed's Birds and Bees

Savage, MN

Well I may be late to the party, but I got my melon seeds up. Hopefully I get 75-100 lbs. Thats my goal. I started the 163 Cieliski (black diamond cross), 277.5 Barber, and a Mudd seed from 2012. We'll see if I can get them to grow!

You might be surprised what you end up with Reed.
I got to 140 in my first year on a really neglected plant.
Be diligent with your fungicide and insecticide schedule,keep the culls down,and you might have a nice surprise !

Finally joined the party. I was able to germinate 2 Barber 250.5 (321 Mudd X Self) seeds. Gave up trying to germinate JBD X CC seeds.
