A number of new growers are asking about the best way to treat trimmed leaves and vines. This is the method I learned from Glenn ( North Shore Boyz) and have been using it for more than 10 years. Get a tall plastic jar(no rust) and half fill it with sulphur. Every season use a new sharp disposable blade to do your trimming. After trimming, brush on a liberal coat of sulphur. Cut the brush handle to fit into the jar and store both blade and brush in it. Generally, I feel that this amount of care is only necessary around the stump and main vine to the pumpkin. All other trimming...use scissors.
