Pumkins, fruit but vines dead?

Posted: Today at 07:28

Hi Chris - we are growing pumpkins for the first time this year, so i am by no means an expert.  However, ours still have very green foliage, so what has happened to yours does not look good.  Have they been getting lots of water?

HELLO FORKERS!

Loved rose the Fairy.  

Not keen on thalictrum elin - which grew to the promised 8 ft then flopped - no colour to speak of either

Evening all - sounds like a busy day all round.  Did my weeding (well some of it) - then the weather was so nice we took the bikes for a spin.  Beautiful out there.

OH bought himself a greek cookbook on holiday, so we have just had stuffed peppers, kebabs with spices bought from the Athens market (wow, what a place, never smelt anything like it), and curly fries (not greek, i fear, but yummy).

and now there is tennis to watch

What's the star in your garden right now
