I dont understand what is happening to my cantaloupe plant it looks like it is withering away. It started to get a lot of yellow leaves and and now a lot of the leaves are very limp.

Does anyone know what could possibly be going on with this plant. Online say it could be over watering but it is the only cantaloupe plant having this issue.

This is what it looked like a few days ago. It had a lot more life to it.

This is what it looks like now very withered and turning yellow.

These other images are a closer look at the plant now and some of the leaves

Hello @adp1998 and welcome to the forum :)

Do you have any enemies? It looks as if someone might have sprayed your plants (and grass) with herbicide :unsure:

Hey @Tetters i don't think it is herbicide. It wouldn't be easy for that to happen it that area that the garden is in. Plus it is only effecting that one plant in the raised bed.
Its looking better but i think it could be a fungus or something. I cleaned up some of the flower buds that that had mold like stuff on them and the plant is looking better or it is getting there

This is what it looks like now

One of my cucumber plants was wilting a lot the other day, right next to the one that wasn't wilting. The culprit was the soil shrinking away from the raied bed wall, exposing some of the roots and drying them out. Filling the gap with soil and a good water made it good as new.

@Pepperhead that actually makes a lot of since. This cantaloupe plant has for some reason gotten a lot larger then the the other plants. It never real started to vine out until recently. It was just makeing a really large main body. I noticed that the it was trying to making new roots from some of the stems and some got exposed, so I tryed to cover them up to see if this may help and I have seen some progress.
Also the wall of the bed has warped a bit so I'll check for some gaps and hopefully that will fix the issue.
