Melons aren't vegetables of course but that does not mean you can't add a few varieties to your home vegetable garden.
Melons range from cantaloupe to watermelon and honeydew and many other varieties in between.
Most grow on vines, so they do take up some space if you do not put the time in to have them grow vertically up a trellis.
If you are willing to either put the time in to direct growth vertically or are willing to part with your gardening area, melons can add some great tasting produce just a few feet from the kitchen window.
Here is how you can successfully grow melons in your own home vegetable garden.
