Hate when this happens...

Mowing along a row of three Morning Glory vines, a plastic piece on the mower snags one vine and tears it right off trellis. It was growing so nicely and was about three ft.tall. grrrrr Too bad it didn't up root it, I may have been able to stick it back in and urge it to live; but it actually got snapped off below the soil line. There are side roots showing from the piece of central root but I don't think it'll survive.

MGs are kind of funny about transplanting anyhow. Maybe I'll sow some more seed there and perhaps they will germinate and a vine may grow and catch up with the others later.

Lawnmower and weedeater accidents are a terrible thing - I think we lost a MG today to the diligent weedeating of our neighbour. :(


RE: Hate when this happens...

I think this is too good to be true, but yesterday after I pushed the vine back into the ground I watered it real good. Last night it was wilting. This morning it actually looks like it may have perked up! So I gave it another long drink. Will see how it's faring by this afternoon.

Well, I think the end is near for the MG vine. :(
