Attack of the Killer Vines

Don’t get too close…


That’s two of the pumpkin vines there to the right of the fig tree, and they dang well mean business.  They have curly, grabby bits similar to cucumbers, but those on a pumpkin vine feel rather like 50 gauge wire:


And they grow FAST.  We thought we could just let the vines go as they wanted around the base of the fig tree…


…which just goes to show we’ve never grown pumpkins before.

Mal still won’t get near enough to them to allow for a scale shot…


Which just proves he’s a SMART dog.
