Just finish watching the California pumpkin growers webinar. Wow! Well worth the $20 may have not only helped me this year but cut my learning curve for the next 5 years. Thank you to all that made the zoom webinar possibly and available.

I added peat moss, 15 bags of perlite, 40 pounds of lime, 300 pounds of gypsum and tilled it in. I'll added 1/2 the amendments from my soil test just before planting time localized to half the patch around the plants. And the other half as the the plant grows. I ran out of gas on my tractor so the till was good but will need to be hit again once amendments are added.
