Answer: Your plan to add organic mulch is an excellent one! Aged compost or aged manure make terrific amendments because of their ability to loosen soil and hold moisture (a real plus when growing melons of any kind). I'd spread 3"-4" of manure or compost over the area and til or dig it in to a depth of 6"-*' prior to planting the melon seeds. Hope you have a huge harvest of tasty melons!
