Another old post found in the blog drafts.

Growing watermelon and cantaloupe is fun if you have good soil and a football field. Similar to winter squash. They grow and grow. In a couple of months they become twice your height. If you’re lucky and skilled in the art of harvesting cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon. Multi-pound fruits will be your reward in the summer. But, if you are just like me. Well then better go to the supermarket and buy one for a dollar. Because my cantaloupes were merely tomato size.
