The keeper @ 10 days old isnt looking great. Plenty of other ones to choose from at the end of the secondaries. So I will probably pollinate some backups. Not totally sure what the nutritional issue is here but its the exact same thing I saw in this spot last year. Probably zinc, boron, copper, calcium, and phosphorus. The usual suspects. The soil here is shallow so there's not a lot of room for water or soil biology either, but at least there's very little disease pressure here. Super healthy plant, far more likely to be one of my known soil deficiencies than disease-related.
