I THOUGHT I got mine from Baker Creek. I know I'm not a member of SSE, so i don't think I could have bought from them.

My notes show that I asked SSE several years ago, but they said they had none, but were interested. Or maybe they said they had nine AVAILABLE, or words to that effect.

I'll have to try that again.

I seem to recall just a few "common" seeds offered to everyone, then wasn't there a many-hundred-page SSE "book" that you needed to be a member to order from?

I'm probably misremembering from many years ago. You're probably right that I got mine from the same place you did - SSE, I just don;t remember.

Not a watermelon...
I made this from two 2-liter Dr Pepper bottles. You can't see it in the photo but there is a piece of fabric to act as a wick - this type of plant enjoys moist soil.
I added a small overflow tube to direct the water away. All parts are recycled or repurposed.
