green mulch for melons

green mulch for melons

in a couple of my seed catalogs this year i've found rolls of 'green mulch' which is supposed to increase melon yields by 20-40% (similar to how red mulch is supposed to help tomatoes). i live in minnesota and we have a very short growing season, so growing melons is a challenge. i've had mild success with athena cantelope (75 days) and sugar baby watermelon (80 days). and they're so wonderfully delicious that i want to grow more and bigger melons, i'm just not having much success with that part. i'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with this 'green mulch'? http://www.territorialseed.com/product/1664/171 http://www.abundantlifeseeds.com/product/508/45
