Compost cantaloupes

I don't know if these compost-pile cantaloupe vines are going to make it:


Like their cousins the squashes, melons thrive in compost piles.

It seems to me that I should just start throwing rotten melons and squash onto compost heaps and quit trying to nicely plant them in my beds... they always do better in the compost anyhow.

There is a lesson or Great Amazing Garden Idea here, but I'm too lazy to sketch it out fully right now...

We got mango trees growing up out of our compost. Maybe I should try throwing some pumpkin seeds out there, too.
