Nothing says summer like a ripe, juicy watermelon. That’s why I’d decided to grow some despite my extremely limited garden space. Watermelon vines require a lot of space so they and ramble, so it would seem almost impossible to think that you can grow one in a piddly little container.
But you can. And I did.
What you are looking at is a miniature varietal watermelon in a five gallon grow bag, with a triangular wire tomato frame. So far, I’ve gotten two delicious melons, and while much smaller than what you’d find in the store (they grow about 8 to 10 inches wide) they are absolutely perfect for the urban gardener.
I picked the second of the two melons today…
If I can grow a watermelon in a bag, there really is no limits.
