My neighbor and I were planting peppers yesterday and all of the neighborhood dogs reminded us that they love freshly tilled soil.
I remembered that I had a portable electric mesh fence that I had used on my small farm in Alabama.
We dug around in the "shop" and found it. As we were unwinding it there was about a 1 1/2 foot vine tangled in it.
The leaves of that vine were green and somewhat wilted but still supple.
I laid it in the shade for the rest of the day and last night put it in a plastic bag with a moist paper towel. I was going to call Texas A&M Monday.
This morning it was obviously dead-dead-dead. :(
Now here's were some of you might want to send in the folks with the white coats.
I packed that fence up in a cardboard box that had not been opened for 15 years!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot believe that I killed that poor plant. A plant that stayed green in a dark box with no water--a box that has been in storage that ranged from below freezing to 110+ for 15 years.
