My mounds are finally done after the cold and wind snaps. The article says to plant 2 feet apart and then 5-6 feet apart. Do I need to plant my melons 2 ft. apart on top of the mound or 5 ft apart on top of the mound? I'm confused. The last time I grew mound fruits was 14 years ago, so I don't remember the spacing requirements. We have a local co-op nearby so I will have my soil tested for nutrients. Thanks.
