In an act of absolute idiocy, I have managed to crush all but two of my pumpkin plants. Thankfully, the crushing only caused the stems to bend, but not to break in half. I'm still horrified that I've went and killed all my seedlings in one fell swoop, though. I made splints out of tape and toothpicks for the seedlings I could salvage (two didn't make it) and I'm just wondering if there is anything at all I can do to make survival more probable? Should I water them, give them sun, anything new? Or should I cut my losses? Any feedback is highly appreciated!
Attached picture shows one of the splints I made (later added a support toothpick to keep the stem at a natural angle) and an example of the kind of damage caused.
