That's a nice greenish blue. Its name is Greeb. Vine went to eleven feet. Side vines started. I believe the vine failed from lack of calcium, I didn't give it any. 14 hours of light from seed. Looking forward to spring .

Sooo my really stupid plan of four vertical bushel gourds above the tomatoes is becoming a jungle. The plants are nipple high. 5.02 LaRue the only first tier that took it is pushing the state record measurements. Come on 3 pounder B A decent start.

As I sit here and dream of getting passed the 2 pound club. Here starts my hopes of having something to bring worthy of the GPC weigh off scale. 65 days left. I planted four gourds above the tomatoes. The have trellised nicely. Great shade... I take a flashlight and machete mid day to find the plants.
