I have a 967 Horde* squash going in the little greenhouse.
Just started 10 field pumpkins including some Dutch ones and the 189 Crews and 109.5 MacKenzie.
Got two long gourds growing: 122.88 Eaton and 137 Eaton.
Planted two marrows this morning along with a bushel gourd (185 English).
Got a 220 Bartoli watermelon growing in the big greenhouse.
Also 9 giant beets in their final positions as well as a giant bell pepper (Nieuwenhoff).
Just have to start the giant cucumbers, sunflowers, runnerbeans and tomatoes (incl. Sproule, Johnston and/or Butler, Timm, Nieuwenhoff, etc).
Should be a relaxing year.

I've got a 2095 Willemijns, a 1684 Willemijns, 1803 Hoelke, 1404 Jarvis and a 1861 Cultrpi (spelling?) In the ground so far.  It will get narrowed down to two plants eventually. 
Plants are growing well.  A couple of them are going to have outgrown their little huts today. 
Weather has been up and down here.  Not as much rain as everywhere else but enough lately to not feeling like going to the patch after supper.  But dry enough that I am working in the strawberry fields today. 
Ive got some sunflowers, cabbage, carrot, celery and watermelon out hardening off and can put in the ground soon.  Had a minus four a few days ago so I am glad I didn't put the plants out any sooner. 
Happy growing to everyone.
Pumpkin 1347 lbs
Sunflower 254.5"
Cabbage 48.8 lbs
Pear Gourd 121.5 lbs
Carrot 8.9 lbs
