Greenhouse-Patch After a one-season-break, this year my best patch intended finally to reach the 500kg with a known and proven seed: 1662.5 DeBacco15. For this purpose my greenhouse was technically upgraded significantely with mist nozzles, sprinklers, a new roof and so on. Pollinator for the 1662er should be the 1704 Fleser or the 1266 Jany.

Hecken-Patch After many watering-problems at the hottest and dryest year ever in 2018, this year the wheater forecasts also do not look better for Brandenburg,...so I have decided that no giant is going for weight here..... ...No chance for good results. Instead I will make a genetic-season with ten older orange giants and three green squashes.

TeichPatch / 150 SQF No Keeper at the 1704 Fleser......; SQF-Out!! The may was too cold, the june to hot with many burned leafs and females.... ...and the july was too cold again, so the plant in the meantime has 250 SQF,..with no keeper. At the moment I`am taking all females to have a look for colour and shape because the 1704 is the pollinator for my orange 1662.5 DeBacco.
