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.

GreenHouse: The 1662.5 DeBacco looks great and the mainvine has leaved the greenhouse at the frontside. In some days the first sidevines are leaving the greenhouse at the sides too.
