A gardener here showed me how to use a long broom stick to move the vines to
find cukes. I can also find or make a place  for my next step without
damaging vines.

Actually, I'm more worried about them killing the vines as they walk the
field. There's no place to step without stepping on baby melons.  I've never
seen them continue to make like this.  The vines are full of almost ripe
melons and just as many babies.  I guess I'll just close my eyes since they
don't have good foot coordination, never mind hand/eye.  lol
