A Solitary Bowl Gourd Fruit Harvest

The vine was doing pretty well after I added in the compost and the vermicompost fertilizer. There were many tiny fruits forming. My CGers were looking at them in anticipation of their harvest. However the rains that came almost everyday in the last two weeks dampened all hopes cos' I noticed the area where the vine was planted didn't drain out the water well. So the vine started to rot and the baby fruits also started to rot and the leaves turned browned. Only one fruit despite all odds managed to grow a good size.
