Cantaloupe Pantyhose Slings

This is my cantaloupe trellis with two pantyhose slings holding the fruit in progress that I mentioned yesterday. Aren't they beautiful (the fruit, not the slings)!


  1. I'm so jealous. I pulled out our melons and put in some butterfly plants and an aphid-attractor (Guara) to try to encourage the aphids to eat that and leave my Red Noodle Beans alone.

  2. How close do you need to put the Guara to get them to move to another plant?? I'm still fighting the aphids on my southern peas. The ladybugs have not done their job. I've released 2 batches of them so far this week.
