Great looking pumpkins!
And I get what you mean, I've been having a huge insect problem with my pumpkins too this year, leaving me only a few good ones.
The weather here hasn't exactly been good either, so I hope the ones that are still good make it.
Still doesn't ruin my Halloween spirit though, nothing will
Thank you! I love being able to carve ones that I've grown on my own. It just adds a little something to the end product.
The squash vine borers have been TERRIBLE! I've lost way too many plants before I should have. I took two off the vines yesterday, one was 17 lbs. and the other 19.5. They only grew for about 21 days before turning, and at the rate they were going I thought they'd get to be around 35 lbs. before cutting them off I examined the vines and saw both had been killed early due to squash vine borers.
Good luck to your pumpkins. Hopefully we still have a few more weeks of growing season.
