Growing Melons and other vegetables in a small space. In the foreground is where I grow cucumbers on the twine trellis and to the right further back is where I grow melons on a twine trellis. The box on the right is for garlic, on the left tomatoes and peppers. A little beans and carrots grow with the cucumbers. Crop rotation is important. When the melons get over 3 inches, I put mesh around them and us hooks to hang them from.

Super! You really get a lot out of your space there! And thank you for the idea of cradling the melons. That's a pretty clever space-saving idea! (11/21/2008)
