Trellis for the Melons

I was going to construct a bigger trellis for the Charentais melons, but instead decided to just use what I had lying around. The vines were getting long and really needed to get up into the sunlight. The upright poles are over 6 ft so I can still add a few horizontal polls. By the end of next month I should have a wall of vines growing from these two plants. I think each plant has 5 or 6 secondary vines and I'm going to start pinching them back, limiting each plant to two or three vines. I'm starting to see male flowers. No females yet.
