The AGs are doing better (sort of). At least the squash "Würmel" is doing fine, could become a new squash PB for me (by just a couple of lbs) if it keeps on going and growing. The AG pumpkins seem to have plant problems (looks as if the plants have had too little nitrogen in June/July, even though there must have been plenty of N in the soil. "Mondenkind" (top right) intensifies her color. "Buckbeak" (bottom two pics) must have had some stress soon after pollination, the blossom side half of the fruit didn´t continue to grow. Hence, daily gains are less than half of what I would expect in case of normal plant health and fruit expansion. Anyway, the ribs and color of this pumpkin are beautiful.
