Proper Care for Sweet, Juicy Melons
Choose a sunny location with fertile, well-drained soil for planting, ensuring adequate spacing between plants to allow for ample growth and airflow. 

Cantaloupe, with its sweet, aromatic flesh and tender texture, is a popular choice for home gardeners looking to grow melons. Plant cantaloupe seedlings in a sunny location with well-drained soil, spacing them about 12 to 24 inches apart, and provide support for the sprawling vines, if necessary. Harvest when stem tendril has dried and the end is fragrant.

Watermelon, with its juicy, refreshing flesh and iconic flavor, is a summertime favorite in many households. Watermelons need about 100 days of warm weather to produce an edible melon. When is it ripe?  1) the tendril nearest the point on the vine where the fruit stem attaches is browning/dead; 2) the spot where the fruit rests on the ground is yellow; and 3) the classic judgment call  — you hear "punk," as opposed to "pink" or "pank," when you flick the melon with your fingers.
