Pumpkin Surgery

I had to take drastic measures to evict vine borers from the pumpkins I planted last month, so I made incisions in the stems and, shall we say, used my knife to remove the interlopers.

Hopefully by covering up the incision and mulching around the base of the stems, enough watering will allow the plants to repair the damage and produce pumpkins in time to make a Fall-themed beer for Thanksgiving.

Fingers crossed.
