It must almost be pumpkin season

The warm weather has brought out the pumpkin growers in full force. Had a nice visit with Joe "the master" Scherber. He made a 1068 Wallace mold and made a gold key ring. Very cool. If the dental thing doesn't pan out for Joe he can always do jewlery.

Also had a nice visit with the Menzines of Arvada this week. They are looking to grow big and I can tell they have the will to do it.

I have been thinking about my planned crosses and the more I think about it the more I like the 1236 Harp x 1385 Jutras cross. If you follow the gentic lines you will see that there is a world record pollinator on each side of the cross. You then go back one more generation on both sides and you see another world record pollinator. You can even go back one more generation on the 1236 side and there is another world record pollinator. Hopefully that all translates to a new Colorado state record seed next year.
