Figured I'd better make an appearance on here this year. This is my 1049 (hodges). Plant is 26 feet wide and about 20 ft long. Pumpkins on at 13 and 17 ft. Misting and shade system is doing well and I'm getting very little sag in the leaves on those upper 90s days. The mats i bought for weed control have been a life saver. Some of the weeds have gotten out of control but still better then last year.

Here is the 638 sawtelle. Plant is a little small but the vines have been really growing the last week or so. Also the roots on this thing are crazy aggressive. Have one at 11dap at about 13 ft and another at 17 just a couple days old.

1418 Sawtelle looking lumpy and thumping light. Taping 700 at day 50. All the plants are hanging on, leaves look good but have signs of gummy stem in places. Saw the first sign of powdery the last week of june but i apparently got it slowed down.

Started rough but ended up decent. The three stooges came in left to right at 996, 1246, and 1089. Each got 3rd at their weighoff. Increased my pb by just short of 200 pounds.

I took my first shot at pumpkin carving on my 1246. Ran out of meat under the jaw so thats the best it will get...not disappointed tho.
