150 contest update. The extreme early season heat + animals have eliminated some of my options. There's one last female flower on the true main (4 lober, opened 6/13). A secondary has taken over as the main from the same node as the female, which could be used as a new main but will be removed if the pollination sticks. There have been a number of females on secondary vines, all of which have aborted so far. There is one that may be developing, covered by the tent nearer the camera, which could be an option in the area of the patch where the secondary vines were prematurely terminated by the wildlife. Mill cloth was set down to accommodate the preferred flower, but extended beyond the pre-determined growing area (by 32"X60"). New markers + white twine denote new boundary that accommodates the mill cloth, where 19"X100" of unused area is excluded.
