Not a bad start for me so far. Looking back on records I'm ahead of any past year. I have 4 plants, all 6-8 feet. Best one is the 1676.5 Daletaswith a pumpkin showing near the end that should be at 10 feet for a June 22 or so pollination, followed closely by a 1733 Kline. I am growing a squash for the first time this year and so far it looks great too (1024 Daho). The only sad story is the 1916 Barren, one I really wanted to grow. It started out an odd flat vine, then it wouldn't lay down and eventually snapped (sorry Brad for all the trouble to get the seed to me, but thanks for the chance). Good thing I had a back-up planted in the same hoop house so I now have another 1733 Kline growing there as well. Other stuff I'm growing all looks pretty good; Sunflowers, Corn, Long Gourds, Cabbage, Rutabaga, Carrots, Parsnip, Bushel Gourds, Peppers,..... yes, there's more.....Tomatoes, Kohlrabi, Runner Beans, Marrow, Field Pumpkins ..... what the heck was I thinking. The only thing doing nothing is my watermelon. I've tried to grow them before with no luck. They were started Mid April indoors and went outside Mid May. They are now vining out and should be reaching close to 4 inches very shortly. Good luck Everyone.
