Four Watermelon plants in containers looking for a warm balcony with southern exposure 


A spot in your warm and sunny well tended garden with room to lay straw down for fruit as the vines run...I can supply straw. 

Who will have them?

Are these still looking for a sunny home? I'd love to have them and have plenty of sunny warm spots.
Hi Julia,

Yes, two still remaining and awaiting...I am in West Vancouver.

Each is in a 2X3 tupperware container and my hope is to hear about your experience
(since it is my first experience starting from seed and I am going to Australia till Oct).

There are two varieties were seeded: "Cream of Saskatchewan" (Heirloom from Russia, White flesh from WestCoastSeeds ML504) and "Sweet Dakota Rose" (Heirloom Cert. Org. Seeds of Change).

How do we connect? Couple options...

1) I will be attending the "Resilience Revolution" at Langara College this Thursday May 20th, 6:45 pm room C509. I can bring them here...

2) U me at 604-306-1499 to arrange and for directions.

3) If there are any other possible drop spots including your garden...I am heading out to Maple Ridge next wednesday, and I maybe heading from the Northshore Village to Main St. Village many possibilities along that route for rondezvous. Times? Places?

I can meet you at Langara. Or if you'd like to come by and have a look at our setup to help me decide where they would be happiest, I'm just at Blenheim and 41st so not far from Langara. I'd be happy to hook you up with tea/coffee and some fresh eggs from our chickens for your trouble.
Thanks : - )
I am interested in gleaning any info about the conditions the plants will be in and how they turn out because I will be in Australia otherwise I was looking forward to learning to grow one of my favorite fruits. So maybe I will still learn something.

I will be setting up at the "Resilience Revolution" at 6:15pm, so either before or after that?
It might be a bit tight to come before and too late afterwards so let me know what you think.
My cell is 604-306-1499.

I can always just drop off afterwards and I just hope to hear about your experience in October.

I'm coming out from West Van and I will have company for lunch also that day...

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
