The Melon Patch
I stuck in a makeshift fence for them to climb to contain them somewhat. Within 15 minutes they had wrapped their tendrils around the wire fencing.
I have cut off some vines that threaten to obscure the path and I make use of ground staples to gently guide the vines where I want them to go.
And the melons grow daily! We will be sick of melons by the end of the summer!
I love the melon plants in my potager.
This year cantaloupe, next year I would like to add honeydew and watermelon.
I may need a bigger garden!
