With the annual transition from summer to fall starting, it is now pretty clear that my garden won’t yield any of the melons (honeydew, cantaloupe, watermelon). I had tried growing them in the past too but we run out of season before anything is ripe. I won’t bother trying to grow them anymore. What is odd is pumpkins grow well as does anything in the squash family. Just not melons. Come SHTF though, melons would be a good use of garden space anyway.
