This is the first time we've tried to grow melons. We don't know the
variety: the seeds (from Iran) were given to us.
Anyway, they're growing. The vines are spreading - maybe 3 - 4' long.
And, flowering pretty extensively. Based on our experience with squash
and tomatoes, I'd guess they have about 60 days before the clock runs
out. I suspect this will be a problem.
So, is there anything I can do to speed things up? Like, would pinching
off most of the flowers 'focus the energy' on the remaining ones? Or,
prune off some vines, or pinch the tips?
