mulch (and friday the 13th)

Yesterday I helped moved about 2 1/2 cubic yards of mulch. Today I'll help move about the same amount. Tomorrow I'll probably be unable to move. Yay for suburban life.

Yesterday was Friday the 13th. Was yours

Also, my watermelon seedlings keep shriveling up despite having plenty of water. Have any of you ever grown watermelons? Care to tell me how you managed it?
Indexing: ,
We had watermelons in our garden when I was a kid but I don't know that I can help with how they came out. How much fertilizer did you put on them? Do you have good soil for growing? Don't overwater either.
Could be that they're over-watered--slightly-damp basement + watering platform = dead seedlings? Or it might be mildew... *sighs* Oh well. Just won't try it again, I suppose. Some experiments do fail.
