First time ever doing a diary but thought I would give it a try this year. So I decided to grow 4 pumpkins this year and if they all germnate they will be 1885.5 Werner/ 1733 Wallace / 2005 haist/ 2112 skinner any problems with those will replace with my 1869 Greathouse. Good luck to everyone this year

Today I got up the 4x4,s for the windbreak around the patch. I also took soil samples fro all 4 of the planting zones. Hopefully this will help me be more precise with my amendments so I can get everything dialed in for this season
