Every year I put two plants in each hoop house. This is to help insure that I have a good plant to grow and if one dies (or three as the early part of this season went) I will still have another plant to grow. Today I made the final cuts (literally) of the plants. In hoop house one is the 868 Johnson (1161 Rodonis x 1544 Revier). In hoop house #2 is the 1204 Scherber (1421 Stelts x 1725 Harp). A big thanks to those who gave me seeds/plants that didn't make it.
The following are the latest pics from the pumpkin patch. First is the 868 and the second is the 1204 plant. Both have been growing very well lately. Gave both plants some compost tea with a touch of blood meal in it and humic acid.
My wife saw a post saying that a certain pumpkin grower's TV show may be on June 26th on national TV. If you see a promo with an ugly guy that would be me.
