Is this the end of my honeydew?

Post  Coelli on 6/28/2012, 12:08 am

We solved our squirrel problem with the help of a Squirrelinator, but something was still getting into the garden and eating my pumpkin and honeydew vines. Last night we got the electric fence installed and I went to sleep feeling more confident and secure than I have in a while... but whatever it is is probably small enough to get under the wires (we don't have the mulch down yet) and I found this when I checked on the garden before leaving for work,

[/url]

The assailant had devoured the remaining leaves, with only stems. A week ago this plant was a flourishing little honeydew vine with its first blossoms.

Is this something it can come back from? All of the tips are gone too. It's just stumps, bleeding sap now. Sad Do I have to pull it? Sad

oh man, that is disappointing....It might come back. My daughters squash got nibbled down to a stub from snails, and I'll be darned if it didn't come back and live! We have made "covers" out of hardware cloth to go over our newly planted squares to give the plants a chance. Once they are about 6" tall, we take them off and it seems like they can stand a peck or two and still live. I'm sorry for your plant ;/

Replant or get starts from a nursery or big box store. You can leave the eaten on to see if it will come back, but if you want any fruit, I think you should get another plant.

Aaaaw man... I am so tired of my plants getting eaten. Sad That took 2 months to grow from seed and was SO healthy. I hope the little bugger came around again last night and got a good zap from the fence! Hmph!
