WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. The only fruit trees growing in the farms is bananas. A few cantaloupes (plural form?) would have made a nice addition to the dessert table, but it was not to be, at least not this year. The climate on this island had other ideas.

The cantaloupe proved to be quite a disappointment. The vines simply could not handle the typhoons, strong winds, and rain. I was trying to grow them vertically but they were continually being battered and were unable to produce really strong support vines. Too depressing to even take a picture. lol.
Resources

As an amateur farmer, I am constantly looking for information to make things easier, and to be more productive in my farms.

My best resource though is all of you REAL FARMERS out there. If you are growing cantaloupe, please take some time and post a comment with your thoughts, suggestions, constructive criticism, and links to useful sites.

Your input will be greatly appreciated not only by me, but anyone else visiting this page. Thanking you ahead of time for posting.

For now check out the following links, which I found to be very useful.
