Iroquois Muskmelons

The Iroquois melons are doing quite well. They have suffered from powdery mildew due to our heavy rains and high humidity yet they are producing beautiful melons just the same. Here is a look at this vigorous melons vines. This is two plants with vines that are now around 8-10 feet long and growing.The vines have infiltrated areas designated for other plants. As you can see in the picture above, they are now climbing up and over my Autumn Joy sedum.
Here are the two largest melons on the plants. There are many other baby melons hiding among the foliage as well. I bet these plants would have been spectacular if I amended the soil before planting this season.
