Pumkins, fruit but vines dead?

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?

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
