So I have small garden with Melon seeds in them, but they never seem to grown into a Melon. They have water plenty of light, but they never grow past the branch that comes out of the grown and turns brown.

You need a block of land next to them. The actual melon ends up on there once it's fully grown.
Edit: Here is a crappy picture of my melons. Not on right now so I can't take a better one. I just made a box of water on the inside of a where I planted the seeds, and an empty space on the outside. There are plenty of other methods, but I just like the way this looked. Check youtube if I didn't explain this well enough. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y125/GUNBLADE99/IMG_27451.jpg
I bet I have had some really signatures over the past 7 years.
That's the same with pumpkins, you can't grow them like wheat, you have to make sure you there is an empty block beside the seed, so each melon and pumpkin will take up two spaces (not including water).
