Trying to grow something this year is already a challenge. Work, weather, hoops, kids and now soil Knats. Going to try to clean all containers this weekend so I do not move them to my grow beds outside.

My Fair plant in my large pot I made last year that's 20 x 30 ft in size that has no native soil on it. It seams to be working okay so far with its first pollination coming this week .

This photo is from last fall. Everyyear I lose my plants to soil disease. I try all kinds of fungicides, I have used mustard, solorized. So I am trying this. Dug out a 20 x 30 ft. Area rolledout plastic and filled with sand, plant compost, manure compost, core, peat and other amendments. NO SOIL. The area is very spongy and does not compact easily. If this works I will try it on a larger area next year.

Here is my Wolf plant last weekend doing very well and the plant should be about as big as it can get in 20 days. Pumpkin is 4 days old today. I may add bug screen if they increase but so far they have not been bad.
