Default FHIA-1, 'Goldfinger' flowering

This is one of two 'Goldfinger' I have flowering at the same time, they are the same stage right now and were planted on the same day about one year ago.

They were planted on March 16th, 2009 and showed their flags on March 3rd, 2010, 352 days from planting.

These photos were taken on March 20th, 2010.

Actually I'm pretty excited that the goldfinger will flower at this "short" of a p-stem height .....I had been under the impression that they were taller. If Gabe can do it in just about a year .... I can do it in...... 3 or 4 : ( still for NJ ... I'm pumped). Mine grew to about 5 ft last year so should at least get up to size soon!

Thanks Gabe!

LMFAO...after reading these out of context, I could insert some naughty joke here, but I'll refrain and leave it as only alluding to such. Sorry, I'm obligated to take these opportunities!
