Marianne Lipanovich added this to Summer Crops: How to Grow Watermelons
Planting: Look for a warm spot in full sun with very rich, well-drained soil. Amend the soil with compost prior to planting. Provide plenty of room for the vines to stretch out; they can easily take up 100 square feet.Plant in raised hills, the preferred method, or mounded rows surrounded by watering furrows or basins. Make hills 3 to 4 inches high and about 4 to 6 feet in diameter, setting them 8 feet apart. Rows should be 4 feet wide and 8 feet apart. Sow seeds 1 inch deep, with four or five seeds per hill or two seeds every foot along the row. Thin to two plants per hill or one plant every 4 feet. Set out transplants at these distances as well. Put in any supports at this time.If you don’t have a lot of space, consider growing a mini or compact type. These need as little as 2 to 4 feet of space and can even be grown in a large container. Follow the planting depth recommendations given above.Care: Water deeply and regularly to keep the soil moist but not soaking wet; watering basins and furrows will keep water off the foliage and fruit, and prevent diseases.Feed with a complete fertilizer every six weeks. Place a brick or piece of wood or foam under each fruit as it grows to keep it off the soil. If you’re growing watermelons on supports, use netting or stockings to create a sling to support them once the fruits reach about 2 inches. Watermelons face many of the same pests and diseases as melons. Pests include aphids, cucumber beetles and squash vine borers. Row covers can protect seedlings; remove them when the plants flower. Mildew, rot and wilt may also be a problem.
