Big day, buried lots of vines and the growth looks good. Weather is outstanding.

The 2537 is an aggressive plant, too aggressive. Picture left is at 08:30, 70F, no way I was getting the MV to lay back down, so I closed the greenhouse doors, by 11:00 it was over 90F at 13:00 the MV was softer and I got it to lay down. Another trick to avoid a horrible sound.

The long gourds are having a good start this year.

Today I started to bury vines on the 1953 - left and the2537 - right.

Years ago installed GH to keep the temps above 25C, last few years I had 45+ during the day in the GH, so what to do, throw money at it and install a shade net, 7 meter x 14 meter. I will never recover the cost via weigh offs but the plants enjoy it and it does save water.

I've had double MVs, ribbon MVs also, but I've never had a normal MV with double SVs. Welcome to the world of my 2537. Good news is that it has laid down and hit the ground.

The 1953 Daletas has decided to lay down at about 3', the 2537 Crews, also 3' still hasn't hit the ground.

2537 has a very aggressive thick main vine, about 2 feet long today. Of course it has it's own mind and doesn't want to gently lay down this is going to take patience, and we all know how much patience AG growers have.
