A close relative of the cucumber and the squash, the melon grows on vines and needs a lot of room, warm weather and plenty of moisture to grow properly.
How do I start? Gardeners in areas with short growing seasons have plenty of tricks to naturally encourage melon growth; chemical aids are unnecessary. They usually start the melon seeds indoors, in pots, to get the longest possible growing season. They also plant their melons against a south-facing wall or fence that will reflect the sun’s warmth, grow them in cold frames or set them out in large tubs in warm, sheltered spots.
Tip: Gardeners often use black plastic mulch on the soil in which the melons grow. Plastic mulch warms the soil with the heat it absorbs, and by acting as insulation also helps keep soil temperatures from dropping at night.

Just found the worst page in the entire dictionary. What I saw was disgraceful, disgusting, dishonest, and disingenuous.
