A sandy loam with plenty of ell
rotted manure Incorporated in the soil
is well adapted to the production of
muskmelons. The muskmelon la a
heut-lovlnir crop, requiring a long
growing season, about four months,
and cannot be planted until the ground
has become warm. For this reason it
is useless to attempt to grow the musk
melon In sections where the growing
season la not sufficiently long or where
the temperature la not uniformly high.
The northern portion of the United
States la not suited to the growing of
this crop for the reasons cited above.
It is advisable to start the plants In
berry boxes, or on sods in the notbed.
transferring these to the open ground
after the ground has become warm. In
this way considerable time can be saved
and much better result! obtained. It Is
a good plan to place plenty of well
rotted manure In the hills, which should
be about ilx feet apart. Sufficient seed
should be planted so that four good,
strong plants may be had In each bill.
Another plan Is to sow In drills In rows
six or seven feet apart, thinning the
plants until they are from IS laches to
two feet apart In the rows.
Cultivation should be frequent and
thorough, until the vines begin to run.
After this the only cultivation required
is to keep the weeds down.
Muskmelons are liable to be attacked
by several diseases and have at least
one serious insect enemy. For Informa
tion on the control of Insects and dis
eases affecting the muskmelon, refer

trol of Diseases and Insect Enemies of
the Home Vegetable Garden."
