Do these gourds have a chance?
I'm growing my gourds on a cattle panel. I have seven lovely very large martin house gourds. Something has been eating off all the leaves of the plants, leaving the vines. We set a live trap and caught 2 ground hogs and a possum. Today I actually saw the ground hog that is doing the damage-- climbed the arch of the cattle panel! This one is avoiding the trap.
Sadly, the vines are beginning to turn brown. Is this too early for these gourds-- do they have any chance of survival? Any suggestions for what I should do?
