I was also wondering if there is a 2016 Woodbridge fair weigh off prize list on the GVGO website. Is it going to be a GPC sanctioned event or is it fading away?  I can not seem to locate it. ???

Must be some big ones hiding out there. Pretty quiet.

I just noticed I have about 8 to 10 million aphids. I've never dealt with them before. I'll spray some Sevin tonight if I have time, if not tomorrow. I guess it's pretty late in the year now to be worrying about disease pressure from bugs, but I'll still spray. Hope it knocks them down.

Things are still chugging along here. So far not too much in terms of stem or vine rot, but I know that can change very quickly. Looks like a bit of rain tomorrow. I haven't had to deal with growth spurts and split risks from rain much this year.

The 1463 and 1625 Gantner are very close in dimensions, and both bigger than anything I've measured in the past. The 1725 Harp will be cut loose on Friday and will be at the Pembroke weigh-off if it checks out and has no surprise soft spots like I found last year when loading, uh, the worst..

Just a friendly reminder that if you have a pumpkin that looks like it may hit a ton,bring it to Erin and if it is a ton or heavier and grown in Canada by a GVGO member this is what you will win.

$5500from the GVGO.
$6500 from Erin Fair

Thats $12000

This is serious cash folks,and is meant to show our commitment to the GVGO and support and encourage Canadian growers!Good Luck!
