First time diary, first post on the board.

Also, first year properly trying to grow a giant. I have 4 in a 1,000 foot patch, and two more on the hill.

A tough weekend... I lost two of them. They snapped at the base. The wind must have blown just right, and the leaves are like sails. Now I know what your "sticks" are for that I see in your pics.

Well, I replaced the mature plant in the pic with a seedling that came up late. It has three leaves, perhaps it will give us a small giant by Halloween.

The four remaining plants seem to be growing well, although I gave three of them sunburn by spraying neem oil at 7AM on a hot day.
