Is it to late to plant cantalope?
I live in Ohio and was wondering if it is to late in the season to plant melons

Yes, it will be too late now. There won't be enough time to get a harvest before cooler temperatures set in. It is best to get these started indoors 6 weeks before the soil remains above about 50 degrees. Once the soil warms up some, you will already have plants to plant outside, rather than starting fresh. This will ensure that you get a harvest before the season's end.
