We had a stretch of sunny weather of unprecedented dryness. Its cooling off again now. I did see a baby pumpkin about 2-3 weeks away. We'll see if I can match my previous record early pollination (May 15th). But they dont really like to set fruit that early they are prone to aborts so I really doubt it will be a keeper. I might try setting on a secondary. I need to keep disciplined and stay in 150. And yes the prev. pic of the 10x10 hoop is the original 150 plant... my 145 Clayton. I still have the plot boundaries marked with small marker flags.

My only regret is pruning off all the growth at the stump the old leaves are tattered already so I will have to direct a tertiary to the back of the plant to make use of that space. Cant really afford to have any bare dirt areas (area with no leaves) when growing in 150 ft.

Getting busy, but I will try to do weekly updates...
