Good evening, Growers!
Alas, it appears that Hope, at least for the time being, is taking a break. Please note the very ragged state of the vine and leaves in just a week's time. Also note the rather vivid orange color that indicates a maturation of the fruit. There is a little new leaf and vine growth, but the emphasis should clearly be placed on little.
The only course of action at this time is a radical vine transplant procedure, ideally from one of Michelle Lofthouse's vines below...
If not, it looks like 350 pounds will be this year's effort.
