Assessed damage from last weeks cold weather. Only plant untouched by powdery mildew is 513* Weibel. Discovered it had 3 open pollinated squashes on 3 different vines. The biggest one is the size of a bowling ball. It made my day seeing how the 203 Fortey open pollinations are continuing to grow well despite the plant looking like hell from Powdery mildew. Both open pollinations are developing marrow ribs so I am 99% sure that they are 203 Fortey X self pollinations since the closest marrow plant to it is 30 feet away and they are in the middle of the plant. It looks like I can be heavy handed on ferts with the 203 plant if I want to grow something real big. I have a circuit breaker on the plant with multiple marrows growing. 30 Days until weighoff.
