I have a 20 X 20 raised bedI have a 20 X 20 raised bed melon patch to ensure perfect soil conditions, a tilled combination of top soil, compost and sand. Using mounds about 24 inches in diameter,and 4 feet apart, I plant a circle of 6 seeds around the center of each mound. My question is how many plants should I leave (thinning) once they are up and I have established the stronger ones. Should I leave all 6, thin the mound to only 2 to 3 plants per mound, or leave just one? Thank you
