growing watermelon and cantaloupe
Hi I am helping kids in our neighborhood grow a little plot and we are planning to grow a little bit of watermelon and cantaloupe. Last year I planted a watermelon vine that was not successful -- it only grew one little fruit, and I think someone stole it, b/c one day it too had disappeared. Anyways, do you think it didn't flower and fruit well b/c there was only one vine? Are there any tips for growing only one plant of each, or should I try to grow more than one?
