Unbelievable rain for us in the central valley of California but looks like the rain has finally stopped. We set a record for the most rain for April/May EVER! I've had my plants in hoop houses for about 3 weeks. Pictured is the 1656 Stelts. Leaves are 22"!!! Also the 2138 Ceja not far behind. Hoop house has a 689 Donahue.

731 Maydan (x 2138 Ceja) DAP 47 OTT 289 = 512 lbs. 4+ days of 100+ heat slowed the growth but cooler weather is ahead so maybe we will get back to the 17 lbs per day ave.
