Get an early start by sowing seeds inside under light, a raised bed works great and then lay down black plastic to warm the soil. You might want a row cover also. Leave the black plastic on , and when ready to transplant just cut an x in the plastic where the plant goes. You might want to try the smaller ice box varitie of mellons, (sugar baby) they have a shorter growing .
Good luck

black plastic would be better. the black color will heat up quicker and hold the heat in to warm the soil. someone else might could tell you about the clear, I have always used black
