Pollinated the 1451 Scherber Pumpkin Plant this Morning

I pollinated the 1451 pumpkin plant this morning at about 11 feet on the main vine.  A nice 5 lobe flower.  The pollen was from another beautiful 1451 plant that Joe Scherber has.  I'll keep pollinating but I'm hoping this pollination and the one on the 1789 will be my keepers.  I'm concerned however about the 1789 pollination that is at about 13 feet.  We are only day 5 but there hasn't been very much obvious growth so I'm not sure that pollination has taken.  Time will tell.

Gave the plants some foliar Lithovit and Big Bloom this evening.
