I think the seeds in pepper plants are bad to eat , watermelon seeds the black ones you should spit out but it wont harm you if you eat it and cucmbers are absolutely fine its just part of eating a cucmber kind of like how tomatoes are they are so tiny its no big deal at all its not like you will grow a watermelon inside of you if you eat a seed .
Is there a dedicated website where I can find a list of upcoming anniversaries in 2010?
This doesn't neccesarily answer your question but is an interesting and amusing website nonetheless. It list various observation days/weeks/months. For example current observations are
National Ice Tea Month (June)
Watermelon Seed Spitting Week (25-28 June)
National Handshake Day (25 June)
and tomorrow is
Ugly Dog Day (26 June)
Check it out, it is quite funny!
Can anyone give me some tips on growing watermelons?
Supplying water throughout the growth of the plant is important, & absolutely critical during flowering and development of the fruit. Watermelons transpire 0.3 inches per day. To account for this, irrigation should occur two to three times a week (in good weather) with 0.5 - 0.8 inches of water being applied at each application. The primary focus of irrigation is to keep the top few inches of soil moist at all times, but to keep the soil from being waterlogged.
In determining when watermelons are ripe. Use a combination of the following indicators: (1) light green, curly tendrils on the stem near the point of attachment of the melon usually turn brown and dry; (2) the surface color of the fruit turns dull; (3) the skin becomes resistant to penetration by the thumbnail and is rough to the touch; and (4) the bottom of the melon (where it lies on the soil) turns from light green to a yellowish color. These indicators for choosing a ripe watermelon are much more reliable than "thumping" the melon with a knuckle.
Make sure you harvest your melon before a hard freeze. Once picked, uncut watermelon can be stored for about 2 weeks at room temperature especially if the temperature is about 45 to 50°
Congratulations! Hope this is helpful.
