The greenhouse plastic is on, Briar and Blake are going to be great helpers this year, weíre hoping to beat our biggest pumpkin of 1810 pounds! I figure theyíre both good for about 1000 pounds each haha!

All the fertilizer is down and tilled in for the 2 plants inside the greenhouse and the one outside. I put shade cloth up again this year in the greenhouse, I didnít last year. I think itíll help a lot with keeping it cool again. The soil cables are also in the ground and the 6í x 6í hoop house is up outside. Iíll start the seeds on Thursday, the 2469 Daletas, 2416 Haist, and the 2114 Wallace.

All four seeds are up, the 2469 Daletas, 2416 Haist, 2363 Holland, and the 2114 Wallace. The three came up yesterday and the Wallace popped up this afternoon. I planted the 2363 Holland as a backup. I plan on planting them in the greenhouse and outside in the hoop house on Thursday or Friday.

Briar and Blake were getting a tour of the greenhouse tonight, theyíll be great little helpers this year! The 2469 Daletas is chugging along nicely! It was 20 degrees last night.

2469 Daletas is chugging along really good! So far itís the most aggressive of the three. The forecast doesnít have anymore 20s at night so that should help.

2416 Haist, itís also very healthy and growing good!
