Default Cucurbits in my garden

I have one bed of Cucurbits, which I will grow vertically to a height of up to 2.6 m. Because some plants need more heat than others, I covered them with a frame with glass. From the front I have one frame in which there are four watermelons (red) and two field cucumber plants. Then the part is uncovered with the four Hokaids. In the next frame I have two spaghetti gourds and six sugar melons (yellow) - two varieties. I have two more Hokaids at the end of the bed.

I like your cold frame boxes, are they easily moveable? (With help.) I can see moving them around the garden for crops with different starting times.

The frames are made of old table tops. I had them in the garden for more than twenty years and I wanted to throw them away. Early in the spring, a friend called me to say that someone had thrown up twelve glass windows and if I wanted to. He took them to my garden and I made the frames. Assembly and disassembly is simple, just unscrew the eight screws (two on each side). Transfer the individual parts and screw them together again.
