PUMPKIN: WRAPPING DAY


Last week, I made a post about my 'Poor Pumpkin'.
There were so many advices and I have learned more about growing pumpkin.

 

I give more attention to this vine in order to know the real problem, what caused the fruits were fallen.

 

 

 

I observed about the pollination also fertilization. 
Also a possibility about fruit flies attack.

 



This morning I found a fallen fruit, this was the biggest one.
I took the fruits and split it.

 

I found so many fruit flies larva.

 

So I have to keep my little pumpkin safe from the attack.
Wrapping... maybe this is the easiest way to keep them.
Then I took some plastic bags and then wrapped the fruits.


I hope it will do well.
So I can pick the fruits.

  1. That may be why some of my pumpkins and squash go bad, bug larvae. I will have to remember this. Good luck.

  5. I hope it works for you, but don't forget that the flower will need pollinating.
