If, when and where to use straw?

Pumpkin vines will send extra roots down from the leaf axils to help the plant with nutrition. That bit doesn't neeed to be off the ground. The pumpkins can be propped on anything free draining to stop them rotting. Plant pots or upside down blue plastic mushroom trays will do the trick.

I was just going to say that Steve. Carnivorous Molluscs who bore holes in grazing molluscs are quite common in a marine environment. I've never seen it on land though.
