Starting the year off in the pumpkin patch! I am adding 100 lbs of Kelp, 50 lbs Dolopril Lime, 50 lbs Ag Lime, 50 Dried Molasses, 44 lbs Azomite powder, 44 lbs Azomite granular, 50 lbs Gypsum. These are all amendments that I always need to add, and therefor I feel safe adding before I have done a soil test. Obviously this is my starting point, not my full amendments list for the season. I will apply this, and have a soil test done in about a month. From there I will add based on the results.

I got the first tilling done,and amendments added! My patch is approximately 30 x 60, So a little tight when you consider i have to have walking space between them. My plan is to plant them about 5-6 feet apart, and they will be back to back growing west to east, and east to west.
