The weighing of fruit has begun! This board Seems to get so quite with not much action. Anyone wanting advice or growing tips just ask! It’s been a rough year an we all suffered in one form or another....will post pictures of a melon an start a guess the weigh. Grower who wins get a complete set of all my seeds from this an past years. Any soil an tissue test that I’ve done on the last 2 years an a membership for the 2021 GWG. Straight out my pocket. Post weights or questions down below.

Only asking in terms of watering and fertilizer... do you know of a difference in what's optimal for watermelons, cantelopes, and giant pumpkins? Is it pretty much the same? Thanks.

350.51 pound world record! Lol! It's a big melon, and I don't have much experience with bug melons, but it's bigger than mine.

What are ideal day and night temps for good growth? With temps dipping down into the 40’s, I put up a heated hoop house to help with nighttime temps. TIA
