My garden took the latest day of record heat very well, probably because it was only scorching hot for the day, then by 6pm it cooled back down. But for some reason my pumpkin vine didn't fare so well.
As you can see the older parts of the vine died right back, even though I watered it just the day before. The newer growth is still powering along, though, it's even putting out more baby fruit though I don't know if I want it to try to make more pumpkins or just finish off what's already there.
You'll notice in this picture that the pumpkin on the bottom left is a lot smaller than the others. It's always been smaller, though it turned the same shade of ripe orange. No idea why it's so small.
How could it have rotted so quickly? There are already nasty little caterpillars moved in, and fungus ... just ew! I guess I can only hope this doesn't happen to the other five.
