Well, couldn't go the season without something going REAL wrong. Got to the garden this morning and discovered I had a stem split on my 1666 Holland. 5-days until weigh-off and I got the chance to deal with this. Thanks to Dave Smith and Bart Toftness for talking me off the cliff. Treated the split with Captan. It appears to be about one-inch deep. I'll be nursing the plant until I cut it on Friday for Saturday's weigh-off. The Holland plant is 71 days DAP wot am OTT: 277. This one is my best bet to beat the record. Won't be as big as I hoped, but I've learned a lot this year.
