last plant is my genetics seed 233est scherber 19. is 2528 x 2283barlow. Very aggressive plant. I grew a 1781 goodman seed and planted it in a spot with soil heating cables but the plant never developed like the others. I pulled it and replaced it with a 2517 haist younger plant

This is my 2003haist fruit. This was my strongest grower early but then it lost pace compared to a couple others in the patch. It fell out of favor with me so it hasnt gotten much attention the last few weeks. The plant really got a bad aphid infestation and didnt respond to drip tape merit or safari treaments. so yesterday, I cut all the leaves off the plant and inspected the main vine for rot and found none. I checked my new drip line layout and found out no water was moving through.Anyways, some how the valve to that plant got turned off so its likely not gotten even watering for the last 30 days and no insecticde would have made it to the root system. You cant fix stupid.
