Big triple megabloom on Big Zac(5.80 Osmala 2013). Haven't gotten a decent mega to set this season yet. It seems whenever there's a promising bloom the weather is either very hot or wet. Today is 38C and tomorrow 21C and raining...

Thinned a few today. These were sown on the 13th of August. Most are from my 4.938 Domingo, 3.6 Big Zac, and second generation from Big Zac 5.80 Osmala. A lot of them are looking purplish due to the cold weather so I started a few more today.

Tomatoes are greening up really well with the slightly warmer weather. The garden is too wet for anything to be going in the ground yet.

Drying up really well. Today it's 26 degrees. First transplants will probably be on Friday.

Weather looks to be pretty clear the rest of this week so I decided to plant a few today.

Starting to really take off now. Fertilised with organic slow release pellets on Sunday and now they've nearly doubled in size.

They look two times better than last years. They're already bigger than the pics of last years plants taken in late November.

Sprayed with copper and pruned a few lower leaves and suckers today. Shouldn't be too long until the first megablooms open.

Most of the plants are approaching knee height. Here are the best looking megablooms so far. Really hoping they're actually fused unlike last years.

Looking real good.

It's going to be kind of hot the next two days. Hope that doesn't affect pollination too much.
Tuesday, November 21 View Page
Weather has been really bad lately. Either too hot or wet, especially when the flowers are opening. Doubt I'll get any successful pollinations.
Sunday, December 10 View Page
Plants are approaching shoulder height now. Fair number of flowers but nearly zero successful pollinations.

Pretty fat one a Domingo. Not sure if it will make it or not.

Got a couple like these but they're growing at a very slow rate.
