Planted the 282 Scherber this Afternoon

The 282 Scherber pumpkin plant germinated a week later than the other plants that I planted a week ago.  However, it came on strong under the lights and it was time to get it into the ground.  The root system on this 282 was very impressive.  Even better than the 1415 and 1985.  We will see how it will do.  It is planted with the 1415 which early on was a fast grower, but it hasn't kept pace with the 1985 since being planted. 

Both the 1985 and 1415's color doesn't look great.  It has been cloudy and rainy every day in Denver since the plants went into the ground and the weather is going to be the same and maybe even a little cooler for the next three days.  Yesterday the sun came out for about 45 minutes.  The plants didn't know what to do with it.  It will be interesting what happens when things really heat up.
