I got carried away this year since it's my first year of actually growing more than just a few tomatoes.

I wanted to try growing "orangeglo" watermelon but I also had some black diamond seeds that I saved from a melon I purchased last year. Since I don't have alot of space, I put both seeds in my raised bed and the plants are growing like crazy crossing over each other to the point where I can't tell what is what anymore.

Seeing how the bees go crazy crawling all over the flowers, I'm pretty sure I'm going to get some cross pollination due to the proximity of the 2 watermelon vines.

I don't expect to get any crossing between the cantelop, yellow squash, or spaghetti squash but wanted to see if there's any experience good or bad with unintended watermelon crossing.
