Furry Vines/General Questions
This is the 4th year I've planted squashs (Zucchini, Acorn, Yellow) and the first for pumpkins, gourds and watermelons.
How do I handle the spikey vines as have been attacked by them when I tried to cut the ripen vegs?
Also want to know if I am doing the right thing with my gourds as have put up 8-ft tall trelises with chicken wire fences. Have tied the vines with twine so hope I am doing the right thing. Some white flowers have surfaced but they flattened out after the 1st day....so any advice would be appreciated (these are the birdhouse variety as the swan neck ones are left on the ground). Thanks!
