The craziest of all: A round bale of hay, dropped in the ground on its side. I threw all kinds of garbage onto the bale like miracle grow and blood meal. Then I piled dirt on top. The dirt one foot above the bale was 120 degrees in December around Christmas... Now it's down to 73 degrees.

This project is not something I wanted to post other than to humor you and give you something to think about. If I had only thought put up some plastic around there I could have had a redneck, electricity-free sauna. (With an ammonia smell that would knock you over!).

It's my self-appointed job to keep you amused in the middle of winter...

Well, even supposing it works and grows a huge pumpkin, it's so much work. It's not a fit for my goal of doing things in an "effort-sustainable" manner. I probably will never try this again.
