Hi Freddie12! Nice to hear from someone this time of year! I had about a hundred cantaloupe growing the year this pic was taken. Some were on the ground and some were trained up a fence. I got to eat a few then the squash vine borer got them. Maybe there are no SVB's your area but in case there are, I found out that radishes will repel them. I kept an eye on those on the fence and they grew to maturity without falling. A little fence might hold melons better than the poles, not sure. Your supports look good tho and no need to take chances on them falling before they're ripe. I've heard of using nylon stockings for support. I have a little watermelon that has crawled up a fence and I'm getting ready to try the nylons. All of your produce looks beautiful. Love your grapes, I'm going to try them next year.
