I am very interested in your answer to a question from someone else asked directly to you in another thread. You probably haven't seen it. I am copying it below. Thank you very much.

MamaBear, I have a question for you too. I intend to grow cantaloupe & squash amongst my veggies. I know viney plants take a lot of room but my question is...
Would I be able to snake the vines in & around my other plantings or perhaps "guide" them around the perimeter of my plot? I have a 10'x18' plot & I'm in VA.
Thanks for the help, in advance.

I am not Mamabear...but you could always grow them up...put in a few stakes and some wire...or get the bean netting...and grow your vines up...I do this for cucks...squash...melons...any of your vining veggies and fruits ...this way you can have more growing in a small space

I do know that i have trained mine to do what you are trying in past year but you cant sleep at the wheel or they will go everywhere. I trained melons and cukes without much trouble. I have used twine and stakes to keep them in there place in the past.
