Saving Melon Seeds

Okay, now this has been my favorite thing to

grow this year, honey rock melon!

Now this method of seed saving will work for all melons and squash.

To start, you want to pick your biggest melon, and the one that tastes the best. My cantaloupes were pretty small this year, so this is my biggest one.

Next, all you have to do is cut it in half.

Then, you will scoop all of the seeds out of the melon and put it in a bowl or on a plate.

After that, you will separate the seeds from the melon goop!

Lastly, put the seeds on a paper towel or you can even use coffee filters, and let the seeds dry.

Once they are dry put them in whatever storage method you are using and store in a cool dry place until you are ready to plant.

Easy as that! Happy seed saving!
