I have a lot to catch up on.
First here's a cabbage on July 3rd.
Same one July 10th
July 24th, going to seed.
Such a shame, because it was over 40 inches at the start of June and ended up 54 by the time it was seeding. I guess I planted too early, so next year. Probably bring it as an exhibition just to get a weight.
Yeah, I did the math for 11.9 ounces not 13.9, so you right.
Nice one Noah! I'm calculating it at 4.87. Check your math and let me know
I picked the 2.59 DeMars Big Marley today. Final measurement were 24, 23, 20. This comes out to roughly 5.6 with a m factor of 0.0005. I had been hitting about 0.0004 last year which would be 4.4 pounds. Actually weighed 4.74 pounds! New PB by 2 pounds!!!
This is where the stem pulled from the fruit a couple weeks ago. Really worried it would rot out there, but by drying it everyday, the moisture was kept at bay, and the fruit healed.
Probably don't have any more, just one that's maybe 2 pounds. Which is too bad, cause it's a warm fall, and I'd love to have one for Wellington, but we'll see.
Yep, off of your 4.23. the rotten one was off of my 2.01 and my big one (5+ estimate) is off of your 2.59 Big Marley
Nice Noah. New PB.
Another one bite the dust!
This one hurts because it was still growing and a nice size...
This however is a new entry for team 1 at 2.73 pounds. Still have a bigger one growing...
I've lost 3 like this so far this year. I think it's a combination of the rain and then high temps. Not sure though. Hoping neither of us lose anymore lol.
Here is a brief update. Have had to pick a couple tomatoes, and here they are.
Off of the 4.06 DeMars, a beautiful single weighed in at 2.9, but sadly rotted where the stem separated from the fruit...
Off of the 6.05 Montgomery, it weighed at 1.6, and this is a viable tomato for the contest, so that's good. Plant had fallen over leaving the tomato touching the ground, so it had to be picked.
Still 4 more, so should be plenty still to come, and the biggest is estimating over 4.5, so I should get some nice ones.
Weighed the 103 Wagler field pumpkin at 118 pounds, right on chart. The worst part is, last year, Wellington was won with a 118 pounder, so it would have been big enough for first if I could have kept it alive.
Pumpkin is at 660 pounds growing at only 10 per day, but the third pic will show why.
This is what half the plant looks like. It was decimated by Squash Vine Borers.
My watermelons are 55 and 65 pounds doing just over 1 per day.
A promising tomato on the 2.57 DeMars. It's estimating at 3.4 and I am hoping I can squeeze 5 out of it, but would be happy with 3.
That hole in the top where the stem is separating from the fruit worries me though. The wet in it is just from rain, but i don't have much experience with tomatoes so I'm not sure if it'll be fine.
Sorry about lack of pics, it it was so hot out I didn't want to stay out longer than necessary.
Last week wasn't a fun week. We had 5 mm of rain and it split my Feild kin. Duck tales the split so it will ripe for display.
My pumpkin had rot on stem and is slowing down to just 12 pounds per day, so no 1000 pounder on it, however we have another fruit growing 20 a day and at 550, so it may happen.
Lastly, I hoped my pic if this tomato would be accompanied by first entry for team 1,
And it looks great, off of my 2.14 from last year, but...
Wait a minute what's that to the left?
While it may look dry in the pic, it wasn't.
Ah well, still have 6 fruits and 8 plants left. Went way light though. Measuring at 20.5, 16, and 16, for an estimate of 2.6, but weighed 2.01, so not great. Won't bother saving seeds. The irony is it came from my tomato last year that rotted the same way.
Last measurement was a mistake, but now estimating at 535 and going 20 per day.
DAP 39ish and 90 pounds and starting to ripen. 103 wagler by self.
202.5 crews plant A
Nearly 30 pounds an DAP 25 growing 2+ per day.
202.5 crews b, almost 50 pounds and growing 1 per day. Already a PB, so happy with that I guess.
That's too bad I usually start min at the end of February
I used to start them the 1st of January but had trouble with bolting
Better luck next
Here are cabbage pics from different angles. Taken today.
I started the cabbage in late November, next year I'll do four planting a month apart starting in December so that this doesn't happen again. I'll send a pic tomorrow.
When did you start
Can you post a picture of it seeding
Here's a large single off of my 2.14 DMG UOW from last year now near 1 pound.
Had space for 6 plants, but somehow ended up with 9, so should have something for team contest. Hoping for 5 pounds, but we'll see.
My pumpkin is 1608 Bryson crossed with 952.5 McCallum. It was really small at DAP 10, but took off when we had some sun.
Now estimating 500+ and gaining 30-40 pounds a day. I'm hoping for a 1000 pounder for a September weigh off, but of it holds and keeps growing, it may be bound for prince Edward county and 1500+...
My other watermelon is at 20 pounds and a late July poll. Will get pics soon.
