Thanks to Reed for the Foss seedling, and thanks to Bill for distributing his pumpkins! My original seeds did not take, so good to have help.

Making a bigger home for a Foss baby. After walking around, decided to move 5 yards of soil into the open walkways. Gotta use all the space.

I missed some garlic last year...it will be super interesting to see how many heads of garlic sprout from this, since each head is at least 5 new heads. What can i say, im firing the three kids that helped.

Drip tape installed. I feel like a real pumpkin grower. Killed a squash vine borer with my bare hands but broke a leaf doing so. Watch out bugs, I'll take a leaf out to get you.

Funny thing happened. I couldn't get a shovel into the 4x8 raised bed behind the pumpkin to transplant that volunteer tomato at the front of the main vine. So I thought it was a wooden brace. So I moved the shovel over a foot. Again the shovel wouldn't break through like it was a bog. Finally the shovel cut through a mat of thick white roots. Oops. Dang pumpkin found the chicken manure I was letting cool off for next year, and really likes it hot.

Svb s make me want to break international laws against chemical warfare. Does anyone do all organic pest and disease control? I want to, because the leaves look healthier before a chemical applications, and I sure it messes with the michorizal network. My giant carrot has some rot issues with the heavy rains...but that's been my way of learning...failure.
