[Market-farming] Melon Patch

I am guessing that you are worried about damage due to your equipment (tractor & wagon).  

What I have seen others do is have the equipment running beside the field and you have several people walking & picking and tossing the melons from one to the other to the other to the other to the person on the wagon.  Hopefully they all have good eye/hand coordination.  



I also have a melon question.  We have the most abundant crop of watermelons 
we have ever had.  The vines are very tall and has consumed every square 
inch of the patch.  We have melons that should be ready in the next couple 
of weeks and then there are tons of new ones still making.  How do we go 
about harvesting this jungle of melons without doing extensive damage to the 
smaller melons and vines? Any ideas?
