277 and 227.5 weighed at Robert's family farms saturday. Lost stump on 277 at day 40 so had to limp along to day 100. Which was a challenge in this wet weather. Could have been a good one considering it was over 200 pounds on day 40 when stump blew. Long 60 days after that. The 227.5 was exb and was an experiment in a hot house. Temps averaged well above good watermelon growing temps in there. So pretty satisfied to get to 227.5. Learned a lot for growing in my new high tunnel for next year. Tip of the day: never put all of your eggs in the same basket and dont beat a dead horse. Try new things and experiment.
