Thank you everyone who participated in the Big Marley cross competition. If nobody has any other entry's coming up, this is where it stands. I have one more that will be weighed sometime this month at a weigh-off. Very impressed with the weights and very happy with the people responded. I will give a final tally at the end of the month. Prizes sent soon after. Fourteen people participated and 29 entries. If you see mistakes or have an entry that I may of missed, let me know.

Mine won't be getting weighed until the Stillwater weigh off on Oct 12. Plenty of time to keep growing.

Big Marley was the best in my poor year. Have seeds fermenting for my planned winter cross with the megamuttD. Very successful cross...congrats garden rebel. I think the Big Marley will be around for awhile.

Will also be weighing one around 12th Oct

Fruit super young due to late pollination and plant had a set back early in the year (ants set up home at base for first month). So it won't be anywhere but at bottom of list - but I did give it a go and allocated some space.It's not had a fair chance to perform at its best here this year.

Congrats all. Thanks for the seeds Rick...my two plants were victims of my amaturish growing this year.

I had 2.36 Official and a 25" one that rotted and I threw in the weeds. Good plant should have easily been my best, too lax of effort on my part.
