In the above chart for rockmelon, am I correct in assuming that the blank months (F.M.A.M.J.J,) after planting is the growing season.

The blank months are when you don't plant seeds or transplant seedlings. The S is for planting seeds early - like indoors (warmer atmosphere inside than outside if planting say spring summer crop). P is normal outdoor planting times and T is plant out your seedlings. These times are a little late. Commercial growers have there seedlings planted by end Sept here sub tropical. Your question is right and wrong to some degree. If all months are blank then nothing grows. Forget about the blank months, the guide is about PLANTING TIMES.
