Weather in Colorado has been a bit schizophrenic this week. 93 degrees one day. Cool the next. Sun in the morning and then rain in the afternoon and then sun again and then heavy storms in the evening. For the first time I saw puddles form in the patch from the heavy rains. Even when we had the floods in Colorado 3 years ago that didn't happen.
The 1985 looks very 2009ish to me. The fact is that it should look that way, but from a genetic standpoint both plants are very similar. If you look at the shape of the leaves on both plants they almost look identical.
I can tell the RAW Nitrogen (learn more) I gave the plants kicked in. This type of nitrogen is one of the few non-organic fertilizers that I give plants but the quantities are small and this type of nitrogen is readily available to the plants. The leaves got bigger on both plants and the side vines have started growing a little faster.
