Looks like I've got at least 5 cantaloupe growing now! I haven't grown melons in years but I may have to start growing a lot more of them if it's this easy. In the SFG method you grow 1 cantaloupe per square. Make yourself a vertical support out of 1/2" electrical conduit, and then tie up the nylon netting. I always make sure to pull the netting tight. If it's not, plants won't climb up. It's got to be tight. Make these yourself for about $12 each and you'll have them forever. They are strong, never blow over, and never fall apart-no matter what you're growing on them.
