Howdy ya'll! I have watermelon growing wild in my compost pile lol love it! I threw in the seeds, rinds ect into my compost pile last week and now I have them growing. What do you think are my chances for them to actually grow and produce something? I'm down here in Austin, Texas (zone 8b, translation: "HOT" For ya'll Northen folks [Wink] and we don't have a clue as to what "winter" really feels like but for maybe a few days early on in the start of the year.

I took the incentive to throw in some sugar babies into my "fall" gardening along next door to some broccoli and spinach just to see what will happen but these fellers which are growing in my compost heap come from those big stripped watermelons you can find in the grocery store.

btw.. I really don't talk like a stereo type southern, I've just been watching too much Blue Collar Comedy [Wink]
