We are trellising our melons and are using knee high pantyhose slings to keep them safe and sound and not get too heavy for the vines.  I added three pantyhose slings today.  
Here is the single Chantarais-type melon getting bigger every day.  We may get only one of these guys. 
It's almost the size of a store bought cantaloupe.  


  1. You gotta love it when your veg looks as good as or better than the store bought stuff because you know it's almost certainly going to taste way better!

  2. Too bad I don't wear pantyhose. It would be great to collect the old ones to use.

  3. Love the pantyhose! I bet your melons are going to taste great.

  4. "pantyloupes"--very clever, i love it. nice melons!
