Updated picture from above.

You can see the missing spot from the broke Cutrupi on the far end of my 6 big plant spots. I filled in the spot with a Treece FP, but it is quite a ways behind the other plants. I started vine burying on 4 of the 6. The vine on the 1904.5 Steil is coming out completely backwards from where it is supposed to. Also a very flat/wide vine. I'm not sure if it's a ribbon vine, but whatever it is will have to do a 180 somehow.. My biggest plant is the 1666 Steil which is the bottom right plant of the big 6 spots. The vine is about 5 feet right now. Not bad considering no heat coils or hoop houses. Would like to start earlier next year, but for this year and the messed up spring, I'll take it.

Far end you can see the decoration pumpkins/gourds/squash starting to fill in. In the previous pictures you couldn't really even see them.

Biggest sunflower plant so far is the one on the close end of the patch (Bottom Left of the picture). That is a Walmart seed. Some of the sunflowers growing at the end of the corn (Top Left) are from the seed exchange box. Smaller plants right now, but probably better genetics for head size.
