Its my first year growing fruits, and ive started to notice my cantaloupe and watermelon leaves curling upward, we've been having a few 100 degree days in a row now, and since during the middle of the day i find most of my plants wilting ive increased my watering to once and sometimes twice a day ( morning and night). But still ive found that my leaves are wilting during the day and curling at night and in the early morning, so what can i do or what am i doing wrong?
