Can I grow watermelon on grass?
I have 10 watermelon seedlings (planted seeds around 4/4 i dont think i have room to plant all of them) and a side yard/lawn thats approximately 12ft x 4ft. My landlord said we can do whatever we wanted to our backyard so I would like to grow some watermelon and other fruits/veggies. The 12ft x 4ft side yard is strictly going to be used for my watermelon plants. Right now it's wild grass and some weeds that i just cut down. is there any way i can plant my seedlings without completely digging up the grass? I read online that you can grow watermelon on grass if you have cow manure mixed with top soil on top of the grass. if this is true where can i get composted cow manure and top soil? i'd appreciate any tips/advice. my location is north phoenix.
