We're at 10ft now and although growing quickly I notice the vines are a bit thin looking, hopefully they will fatten up as time goes on. The soil EC varies from 0.8 to 1.5 and averages 1.3 so I have upped the nitrate application as at this stage I want it to be between 1.5 and 1.8. I sprayed CalCarb under the leaves this morning and noticed what looked like a small colony of black aphids which is a bit early but will be dealt with soon enough. I rinsed out the water tanks and tested the drip irrigation system with water pH 6.6 and it's working fine but the plant is still small enough to water by hand.
