I remember reading that pumpkins and watermelons can be planted in a square foot garden...but I'm having a hard time believing it. I only have the really old version of the SFG book and it's recommendations are 1 melon plant per square and 2 pumpkin plants per 1ftx4ft section. My bed is 4ftx4ft and if I go by these recommendations I will have 4 pumpkins and 8 watermelons in one bed! I just can't be right. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Should I even try or should I just do a couple melon plants in the bed and put the pumpkins somewhere else?
