Hi Benjamin,
I planted a garden this year, my first in many years. I planted some watermelon and cantaloupe. Can you tell me the best way to help support the watermelon vines? Some grass or a weed pops up and the watrermelon vine has been attaching itself to those, so now I'm afraid to pull them. Any advice? Thanks. Your melon looks great.

Hi there Sheron,

I don't actually support them. I set aside a 4' square area to grow them and they of course covered that area and then some. I have a terraced garden at this house. Not my design but that of the subdevelopment. The melons are at the top and they managaed to get down to the second level. If left unchecked I would imagine they would take over the whole garden. I disconnected the vines from the plants they were attatching themselves too and let them grow on top of each other. I have 4 more melons that should be ready for harvest very soon. I thing that will be it for the season. 5 melons isn't bad!

Thank you for the compliments and if you need any advice or anything, drop me a D-Mail any time.

All the very best
Ben
