After a nice weekend with decent weather, its nice to get a pumpkin update in. Here are the competition seedlings from a couple days ago. The pecking order since then has not changed, although the plants are a little bigger now. All 12 seeds started, came up, so that was good news, and have plenty to fill my competition sites. Right now, the power rankings look like this... My 920 is leading the charge followed close by my 833, then my 1581. Then the 2230 Ron Wallace, 2469 Daletas, the 1826 Wolf and rounding out the top 6 (the amount of competition sites I am running this year) is the 1937 Leonardo Ureņa. My 1450's are not as aggressive this year, so that is disappointing, and a couple others are not as crazy fast as I had hoped, but its still early. My plan was to go with a couple of my own, a couple new seeds and a couple proven winners. Have a few more days to decide who goes where. Round one of old seed starting was a sad zero out of 50. Round 2 is in the incubator now and already seem to have better luck going on but won't get excited until I see leaves.
