Neighboring Kent plants still have a way of being close together even though they're 300 mile from their home place.

2 neighboring Kent plants with different melons still trying to get close enough to hold hands. 300 miles from their original home place they seem to like it here near the southeast coast of NC.

We like growing them upside down. Like laying in the bed on your stomach, doesn't it feel good to roll over on your back? It's an experiment I'm trying

After 4 hours upside down, you then roll them over and watch them enjoy the afternoon in the shade
