Thank you BushDoctor. Yes, I found that article useful. I only just realized that the 62 day trine frame was from the date of transplant so that will take approximately harvest date to the 25th of August which still isn't far away. Wouldn't heads be starting to form now?

We did experience a couple of early heat waves for our area. If that impacted their development will they rebound from that?

Also, since they are about a foot and a half taller than they should be is that a problem?

Do you have any idea why one plant is yellowing so much?
