I've read some wildly different spacings on melons and I'd like to get some of your opinions.
I have an area that is 20' X 50' that is currently covered in black plastic, so how many melons can I fit in that space? Or better yet, how far apart should I place the plants?
I have both muskmelons and watermelows and was thinking of alternating them....one large watermelon next one small muskmelon, etc. Does that seem like a good plan or should I plant all the watermelons together?
Also, how far from the edge of the plastic should I plant the melons in order to try to keep the plant on the plastic and not wandering off into other parts of the garden?
