It's snowing again today, but all that does is give me more time to plot and scheme. I like to have a nice clean layout to the garden and pumpkin patch. This pic shows the pumpkin patch and surrounding area with the new layout I have switched to. Each cash site is 20 x 20 feet (can be halved again to double the plants) Competition sites 2 thru 9 are 30 x 35 feet and the 2 "Hot" Competition sites, #1 and #10, are 30 x 40 feet. This layout allows me access to each site at any time of the growing season with the tractor, give the plants a little breathing room if problems arise, and access for any pest control or foliar feeding that needs done. I will only be running half of those sites this year and growing a couple rounds of cover crop on the ones I am resting. As for the rest of the area, I'll have more on that as the season goes on
