Notes for my future reference. I will probably not be posting anything interesting or controversial for the rest of the year... I have made enough pumpkin patch mistakes that the trajectory for this year is pretty well set, and I don't expect anything exciting.

I will continue to make notes here of info that could be important that I may otherwise lose track of. So yeah... I need to do some serious reflection about the ways I need to change, its frustrating to slide back and be where I was last year. I think I can do some things different and better... And then all I achieve is the exact same results.

Notes: Pollinated 6/13: 186 Radach (3 females), 658 Garofano. 6/14: 274 Clayton 'Lady Gaga', 658 Garofano side vine.

Faint glimmer of success: 274 was such a runt... looks good now, genetics is there, just slow to start. Huge blossom, if I could stick that blossom on one of Daleta's plants... 2k for sure maybe 2400 again. I would have thought nothing of culling this plant earlier.

I know my blossom assessment may not mean much, but I have seen a lot of female buds and most are rather ordinary. This one looks to me to have more potential than any other I've seen. I have seen a lot! I guess I should post a picture.
