    Has anyone had any success growing cantaloupe in the Pacific Northwest?

    I grow it, under cloches. Start it early (early April) then plant out under hoops in June. As soon as it starts flowering, push up the sides of the cloche to allow pollination. Good varieties for me have been Halona (canteloupe), Honey Yellow (Honeydew) and Ha'ogen (heirloom Gaia type).
