This is supposed to be a picture of a finished 150 sq ft patch. Other than being a week or two behind, everything is going great.

I don't want to jinx them but my early pollinations may have set.

Trying something new, cutting male flowers off. I dont think its a cost effective effort. But, I need to control the stump-end vine growth better this year.

Weather has been poor and cooler so this has slowed the growth greatly and the 10 DAP numbers will be half what they should be.

Weather is the early season variable. But from past experience I know that as the weather gets better, watering and fertilizing will become the limiting variables... Soon I will get to see if any of my new tricks will work.
