Central Virginia tough red clay:  As with all other fruits, if you have 
heavy soil, try to find varieties that will tolerate it.  I am in a 
search for "clay-loving muskmelons".  If the fruit I grow this year 
(after some research and help from seed savers)  is at least somewhat 
tasty, I know I have found a "winner".  I do amend my soil with compost 
and composted manure, but it is still pretty "tough".  I'll keep you posted.
