I cant even imagine the crazy amount of work you must have in the spring Mark. It’s all I can manage to keep up with my little garden
Will be interested to see them later on

Things are moving alone nicely. The plants are about 8 feet now, I need to get all of the bottom trusses ripened so we can lower the plants, that is my biggest concern right now. We have ate several Mat-Su Express, a couple have been off the charts delicious. Fruit set is good, ferts are 1700ppm, pH 6.2-6.4 average. I tried to get a pic where you can see how the two plants per 5 gallon set in the containers.

Looks good. What is your ppm conversion factor? 0.7?

Thanks, the cold is wearing off now. It is actually 0.74 when we do the math.
