Upcycled Garden: Cantaloupe!

I compost to make dirt for my garden – It’s not glamorous, but there it is.

But then I thought – What if I used my compost to plant my garden?

Experiment No. 1 ? Cantaloupe:

1. Scoop out the innards of a cantaloupe

2. Bury the whole slimy mess under about 2 inches of soil

3. Water your garden as usual

4. Thin out the little sprouts – I placed mine about 3 feet apart

It only took a couple of weeks before a little row of green sprouted!

According to all-knowing Google, I’ll be serving my family sweet organic cantaloupe this summer.
