|Last year, I grew pumpkins for the first time. After a couple months of good growth, the leaves started to wilt during the daytime hours, and then spring to life again at night. I didn't have much success with the pumpkins, so is this wilting a problem? I believe I did everything I was supposed to do. Could this have been a pest problem?|
