Well if I am going to do a complete diary this year, I should put it in the right place. I will start over again here and try and keep it updated once a week. The first plant I have chosen because it is so aggressive to grow is the 1458 Kline. This is what it looked like when it was set out a week and a half ago. Even though I had tried to harden everything, it showed some sun damage.
I have protected it from the extra warm sun rays this week and the plant has settled in and started to grow in the new environment. May 27th
These are some of my other field pumpkins and marrows that I planted on May 28th and that is when this picture was taken
This is the 698 McCallum crossed today with itself ...flower had 4 lobes
This is the 1109 Jutras crossed today with the 698 McCallum ....flower has 6 lobes......Notice my temporary shade covering
This is the1483 Butler today at 5 days growth crossed with the 1458 Kline
This is the 1458 Kline today at 7 days growth
These are some of the seeds I chose for this year

The second squash is my own 698 McCallum.
I also have planted two squashes, The first is the 1109 Jarvis
