Slow start

The Gourds did get off to a very slow start, the problem was that we turned the compost heap while things where hot, then put water on it and it all just got a lot hotter, it was too hot for the roots to get in, some of the plants did die from it, they have now really started to move but I fear it is too late for us to get much of a crop off the compost heap this year, it is a great shame, they will be missed in the house this winter. I just hope there is a good root system in the heap now to help break up the compost.
