So, it appears at least two of my pumpkins have survived their battle with the squash vine borer. I say appears because I won’t totally believe it until the pumpkins are orange and decorating my front steps. But really, it’s been about 6 weeks since the vine borer first reared its ugly head. Since then, I’ve lost at least a half dozen tiny pumpkins.
Like the one to the far left of the pumpkin in the photo above, they have shriveled up, withering on the vine. But for some reason, two others have kept growing and actually look like they’re going to make it.
