No precocious B genes here in my 145. Regrettably I dont know the lineage on the male side. The maternal side is 1610 Lieber & 1662.5 Stelts. I cant believe how much better this plant is doing! A miracle! No heating cables and it was just about dead. It's on a roll now. Good secondaries but the flower buds are weak, so it may be low on phosphorous still? I didnt cover it the past couple nights so the soil temps probably got low again.
April has been way more dry and a bit more sunny than usual. The big beekeeper brought his bees into the valley nevertheless mine are humming along very well. Perfect weather overcast only about 70 farenheit. The scent of the apple blossoms is very strong. When the air smells like perfume that's a good indication that there is quite a lot of food for the bees.
