First time Melons

This year is my first Cantaloupe attempt.

I planted early April and risked the frost(none) and2 and a half moths later both plants are about 5 feet long BUT there are only 2 melons on one and a fertilized melon on the other that is not growing.

They are growing at a scary pace and look healthy, any words of wisdom out there?

patience. As long as the vines are healthy, they will do their thing at the appointed time.
