Thought i was done several weeks ago with plant/leaf deformities across the board. Looked like viral or chemical related mutations. Plants seemed to have grown out of their 'funk' and seem to be doing o.k now all things considered. If nothing else, fellow gvgo'er and neighbor John Butler has some 'pretty producers' in his seed bank;). 1512 Butler sits at 7-800 lbs.

1354 Jarvis- a bit of a 'blob' but still marching on estimating 8-900 lbs.


1095*** Butler squash. Not massive (yet), but is a real green beauty...just has to get bigger. Currently sits at 6-700 lbs.

    Better later then never right? I meant to start this a while ago, but just never got around to it. Here is my bushel gourd progress for 2019. May 23, they have been sitting in the front window soaking up the sun. May 27, I finally got them into the garden. Jun 7, they seem attracted to each other... Aug 8. I had seen a lot of flowers, but hardly any female flowers. After a few didn't take off I decided to manually pollinate them and this one took off! Aug 14. This is before I leave for a vacation, its growing pretty well. Aug 25. Its growing a lot faster then I imagined! I hope my trellis (read: Fence) can handing the possible size of this monster!
