Have any of you ever tried raising mushmelons with the vines trained up an angled cattle panel, or something similar.
Will the vines support the melons hanging in the air???

I was going to try this until I read on one of the garden sites that you have to support the melons with netting or they will pull off or I was thinking the vines would crimp from the weight.

Womens knee high stockings work well to keep melons on and are cheap to buy. Just wash after use and there ready for next season.
