Got everything in today, I'm growing a 1795 McCracken, an 1844 Holub and a 1701 Jutras. My daughter has a 1553 Reeb and son is growing an 1867 Barron.

The 1701 Jutras is out growing the hoop house, time to expand.... again

Expanded the hoop house to about 15' x 13' today. Wind came and almost destroyed it along with 2 others, luckily my kids and I were able to save them. I'll check the plants in the morning.

1068.5 for Abednego to round out the season. God has definitely blessed me this year. If you add up my 3 weights this year you get 4190.5. This gives me my jacket... using 2 squash. How many people have done that?

Got the giants on display in the front yard. Total weight, 4190.5, enough to earn my jacket. I didn't start out trying for it, but the Lord blessed me with it anyway.....oh, and the state record squash. Needless to say, it was a great year!
