Charentais Melon Seedling in Ground

My first Charentais Melon seedling that I started 6 weeks ago (see this blog entry) is large enough that I needed to plant it into the ground (see the picture to the right).

It is a bit earlier than normal for me to start transplanting seedlings into the ground, but the weather has gotten noticeably warmer and I was afraid that I would stunt the plant's growth if I let it get root bound in the 6" container.

I have three other Charentais seedlings that are much smaller that I am holding back, so if this seedling fails to grow, I have backups.

The picture below shows the Charentais seedling in the ground.
