Somehow our pumpkins are still alive despite the fact that they have been taken over by cucumber beetles. As you can see in the pictures below, there are 2 offshoots, but the main vine where they connect looks pretty bad...as in dried up and dead. Now, I'm no pumpkin growing expert, but I don't think this is what is supposed to happen.
Here is a pic of the main root source. I'm not sure how the rest of it is even still alive!
