1803 Hoelke

Jun 3, 2017

I started 3 of these and this is the last one it is my smallest plant but it is doing very well for a late start

Jul 16, 2017

This is my keeper on 1803 it was planted in patch about a week behind the others but has since caught all in size and very nice problem free plant I just wish I had more room for it as it was a back up and had to put it in the 40x 28 patch

    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!
