Planted out 1576 LaRiviere 18 HDA winner and 1656 Stelts 18 HDA winner. After 2 failed attempts at germinating my 761 Rahe 18 I decided to plant out the 1656 instead.

1576 LaRivere. This plant has contracted some disease. Also nothing I pollinated with it took. The plan was to use it to pollinate my other plants and self.

1576 LaRivere. A few of the failed attempts to set a pumpkin. Sadly nothing went my way with this one so I pulled it today.

1656 Stelts day 10. After switching pollination plans I get a set on every attempt. This was my backup plant and now it's the best plant I have. I did finally get one of my 761 Rahe seeds to germinate. It immediately double vined. I cut it off and went with the nearest side vine and have had no trouble since. Farmin aint EZ.

1656 Stelts day 30. est 245 lbs. Developed a foaming stump a couple of weeks ago. About a hundred lbs less than I would like to see by now. It's going to be a good looker though. Took a bit of hail damage 10 days ago.
