Hi. This is our first year in gardening and everything seems to be trial and error.

The day before yesterday we had to move over the cantaloupe vines to do something with the area next to them and they didn't all get turned back over.

Now, two days later, the ones that were not turned over are wilting and not looking well.

Is there any saving them? The plants look really good besides those and have some melons on them already.

sounds like you damaged them. we don't touch vines except to encourage them to grow along the row when they are small yet and we are still able to cultivate between the rows.
