+1 for straw. That's what folks around here use to keep their melons from laying in the dirt.
Since I asked this question here I asked some local gardeners what they do and they all said to put straw or mulch underneath them. I'll try the trellis too because it worked great for my cucumbers. I appreciate your answer so thanks!

Thank you lisavollrath. I suppose it was mildew and it did effect almost all of the fruits. They were planted in a low spot and water did sit for periods of time. I'll have to look to find some companion plants to keep out the bugs thank you!
