2020 Marrow Line Up. Hope to pollinate everything with the 203.9 Fortey for genetic diversity.

Lessons learned from last year.
1. Plant in an area with more sun.
2. Do proper soil prep for marrows instead of just planting them in the ground.
3. Set up SVB traps around marrow plants. One of the causes of trashy looking plants at end of season.
4. Stay on top of preventing powdery mildew from trashing plants. Bought a new fungicide to use this year.
5, Don't be so heavy handed with fertilizer; just let the plants grow.
