I thought I'd grow pumpkins this year. The two spirit pumpkin plants are
doing well, are well watered, and have shown lots of those little nubs
that should turn into blossoms. However, just when I think one is going
to unfold, I check it the next day and it looks like it has been cut off
of the plant and removed... there's no trace that I could see.
Sometimes, and this is hard to explain, all that is left is what looks
like a smaller, more compact version of an unfolded blossom at the end
of the vine, which I first thought would be the beginning of the
pumpkin, but I have 0 pumpkins growing.
So, any thoughts on what's happening? Do I have bugs of some sort, or is
this a natural kind of thing, which I shouldn't worry about?
While I'm writing, this is my first year growing broccoli, and I
recently discovered the joys of cabbage worms. I've been picking them
off, and have been trying to swipe off the egg masses when I see them,
but it seems every day a new worm has appeared. Is this a perpetual
problem to be lived with, or is there a way to get rid of the ***s
for once and for all?
Thanks in advance for any comments.....
