melon in a 2x4 bed... where should I plant it?

8 years ago

Ok... I haven't grown melons since I was a teenager and I can't remember how they vine out.... I am growing one watermelon plant and one cantelope (I know not that much but I like to start with one plant b/c its only me and my 4 year old eating them and we don't need that much).

I have two 2x 4 bed one each for a escorial and watermelon... should I plant them at the northern most end and let them vine toward the south... or plant them in the middle and let them vine in both directions.

(I figure if there is extra space I'll do some radishes or something quick while the vines are growing)
