Sleepy Summer Days

One melon plant left on the roof. I'm not sure how much larger these fruits will get, the leaves are really worn out.

Cruising Into August

One of the melon plants has been retired since no more flowers were pollinated. There are 3 melons left on the remaining plants. Assuming nothing goes wrong with the last fruits the 3 plants will have produced 12 melons total, 4 fruits per plant. I think that's pretty good for container grown melon plants.
