This year has been really crazy and fun. I am on season three. I have a 1049 Swain from 2015 which I received through the Exotic Seed Exchange. I pollinated on Tuesday, June 28th with a 251 Chandler 2015 on the main vine. This morning around 5:45am, I pollinated another female on the main with a 504 Chandler. I would like to try to pollinate two more which I see two females further along the main vine. I am waiting for the 1623.5 Wallace to provide some boy power!! I want to have lots of foliage behind my fruit to offer plenty of growing potential. I have been staking the main and secondaries, removing the male blossoms and yesterday, I installed my first sun shade shelter over part of the plant. I have some more pics up for further information. I have a good sized converted trash bin with a valve and a hose with weep holes all working on gravity since this is a community garden. I water each day w/o rain and follow a feeding schedule. My swain has received Root Mass Expanders, Azos, Essential 101, Fish & seaweed powders, Biomin Calcium, Actinovate, Rhino Skin, Nirvana, Voodoo Juice, and Nutra-Aid Bloom Booster and Fruit Finisher. Patience..........................
