Then I piled on a yard or so of old horse poop. It was full of red worms.

Finally I set up two hoop houses to hopefully start warming the soil. So far Iím miles ahead of last year when it comes to drying out the patch. I hope it continues.

532 and 742 House plants competing for a very small space. Probably only around 300 sqft but never actually measured it. Guess I should do that. Canít wait to see what one of these plants can produce. The genetics are outstanding. Thanks for the seeds Joe.

1421* Jutras and a 1600 H/J. The 1600 will be pulled if the 1135* Jutras I started looks good. Itís just starting to pop through the dirt. This spot is what I believe is the best spot in my patch. My main effort this year will be on the 1421* Jutras squash plant. Go big green!!!

Second best spot in the patch will hopefully grow the 1810 Werner. Backup here is a 1969 Haist. These two are planted back to back with the 1421* Jutras and 1600 H/J. I should mention these plants and the plants in the last picture will be getting around 750-800 sqft of growing space.
