Something is eating my birdhouse gourd flowers
This is my FIRST YEAR at growing birdhouse gourds. I've planted 3 seeds in one spot and 2 in the next. Sofar it has grown 15 gourds (as far as I can tell) between the 5 seeds, but now something is eating the blooms and not just the flower pettals but it eats the whole bloom right off the stem. The area is undisturbed by people (except my husband and I) I do see alot of grasshoppers by the gourds, but nothing else that I could find thats chewing them off not even wabbits. Can anyone tell me what it possibly could do this?
I do know that the goats stay away from them and they just about eat anything.....LOL.
I'm tickeled to have gourds the VERY FIRST YEAR, but I would like to solve this problem so that I won't have this next year.
