Q.Planting Cantaloupe Seeds From Melon To Soil?
Hello all, do the same rules apply to saving the seeds to plant later? (briefly) placing the seeds in a jar of water saving the ones at the bottom for planting I’ll be planting them as soon as I strain them 1 to 3 days later? or can I continue to germinate them and then plant?
