The hail netting is up, but up a little late this year. We had 4 hail storms today and it worked the way it's supposed to.

This is the 1747 Werner 2017. It's going to be orange! (http://tools.pumpkinfanatic.com/PumpkinsSeedGenetics.php?PN=1747%20Werner%202017) I crossed this with the 1501 Vander Wielen 2017 http://tools.pumpkinfanatic.com/PumpkinsSeedGenetics.php?PN=1501%20Vander%20Wielen%202017 This photo was taken around day 25. The plant was hit with hail early on, but it is starting to recover.

A fantastic evening/morning in Cheyenne! This is the first day that we have not dropped below 60 degrees during the evening/early morning. I sure love it when we have cloud cover in the evenings, which is rare. If I can get 4 nights a summer like this, I'm pretty happy.

Since I let all the new growth continue to grow since I over fertilized and killed many leaves early in the season, I have been finding these everywhere in my patch.
