Pumpkin Seed Lineup for 2014

I've gone back and forth on this for months, but the following is my seed lineup for 2014.  There are a lot of great seeds out there and more potential great seeds out of Colorado then any time I can remember in the past.   I even had to leave one of my own seeds off the list (695 Johnson).  Just not enough spots to grow them all.  The list in no particular order:

1220 Johnson (1421 Stelts x 220 Debacco) - Best plant I've ever had by far with a lot of world record genetics crossed into it.

335 Scherber (1421 Stelts x 1161 Rodonis) - Fell in love with the plant my son grew this last season.  It is a cross of two clone plants that produce some big, orange and heavy pumpkins.

971 Scherber (1623 Stelts x 1655 Ford) - Colorado state record crossed into a 1623 plant that had a lot of the world record traits and was 100lbs ahead of the state record pumpkin when it went down.

282 Scherber (1725 Harp x Self) - This is a clone of the world record plant crossed with itself.

1791 Holland (1495 Stelts x 2009 Wallace) - This is a cross of what may be the best two genetic lines available and maybe one of the top three plants on each side. 

1317 Clements (1495 Stelts x 2009 Wallace) - See above.

I'm starting a lot more plants this year than I have in the past and will go with whatever is looking best.  Wish I had a spot for all of these plants.
