Growing Galia Melons From Seed

We were eating melon in the garden, so it seemed the obvious next step.  Maisy planted a few to what would transpire. 

The seeds were planted around a centimetre deep in regular compost, and becuase we were acting on the spur of the moment and didn't have a large number of pots nearby, we put multiple seeds in the same pot.  They had germinated within a week, and we already have fairly vigorous, if slightly leggy, growth.
