pumpjin tale

Postby gardenlen » Mon Mar 24, 2014 10:19 am

g'day,

goes like this, we had a friend look after our place, did very well, but whilst away someone borrowed a large but not rip or mature pumpkin(not friend) don't really mind that as we do share food, asking is always a good option.

but! they clean cut the stem, and after that the vine went downhill, backwards, as it died the other pumpkin matured and ripened, beautiful to eat then. now the plant has been pulled as it grew new laterals but no more fruit and can't afford the water.

any guesses, was the knife corrupted with poison??

anyhow we are going to get around 9 of all other vines one be real soon now.

take care storms coming hey?

I'd say it was just pathogens that have entered through the wound
