My guys are fading fast. Just a month ago I had about 7 Big Max's nearing 40 inches in diameter. I lost one two weeks ago, and another this week. Plus I have two more whose stems are getting mushy so I am sure that I will lose those also. I have 4 that still look good, and three more that are growing beyond softball range. I think I am going to refrain from posting growth rates, since it has started to turn into more of an obituary column.
