Watermelon Bed

This is the watermelon bed I put together yesterday.

What I’m having to do is find a spot between the limestone boulders too large to remove, excavate the soil as deeply as I can with the mattock, remove the large rocks, lay stones around he excavated area, and fill in the bed with the soil from which I have sifted the rocks. The sifted soil makes a suitable transplanting medium so as to not damage the roots; and, hopefully, as the plants grow their roots will find their way through the underlying, very rocky excavated soil.

I will make similar beds for the cantaloupe and more watermelon and plant the tomatoes and habaneras in the area where I’ve been sifting the soil.
