Pumpkins finally growing good. Got two plants that look good, bit one has a split stem. My other four plants haven't taken off at all, thinking the 6 inches of rain in few days didn't help.

Something pruning my main vines? 4 plants out of 7 something ate only three inches of only my main vine on those plants. I been seeing lots of squirrels and just couple rabbits out. Thinking squirrels are doing it.

Not sure what is worst, squirrels or rabbits, both seen both eating my main and secondary vines. Now only have one secondary and rest are shoots off the secondary vines. Not expecting a large one this year. This is the first year I had problems with those animals. Guess the coyotes kept them at bay and haven't seen any this year. I had a ground hog put a six in hole in a 300 lb plus pumpkin five years back getting some water out in middle of summer, but had got rid of him after I seen him do it.
