A garden critter chewed into the stem of this pumpkin plant so we assumed the fruit was done for. Today we noticed that it continues to grow!
We administered a bit of first aid in the form of grafting tape wrapped around the stem.
and a “Jolly Green Hosiery” cover to deter further nibbles.
Elsewhere, the corn is as tall as I am (5’10”) and the neighboring pumpkin leaves are the size of serving trays.
Our sunflowers are getting taller. Today’s heat was a welcome gift.
