Can anyone tell me or direct me to some rough benchmarks for a decent marrow? Today is dap 9 for mine and I’m wondering how it stands against the more seasoned growers.

I measured one almost every day in 2010. From end to end (EE) and side to side (SS). No circumference. The marrow went on to weigh 156.6 lbs. If you add the EE and SS together I got this in inches. Using the marrow estimate chart I got the following weights in lbs.
Day 10: 30" [9 lbs]
Day 15: 51" [25]
Day 20: 69" [47]
Day 25: 83" [73]
Day 32: 94" [97]
Day 38: 103" [128]
Day 45: 106" [136]
Day 50: 109.5" [150] - real weight was 156.6 lbs

Hope this helps.
