Okay vacation is over and back at it. Here are some pics of the pumpkin patch from yesterday. We are expecting some rain this week so have covered the competition sites so as to not lose that nice drying we have received the past couple weeks. First pic is an overview of the entire patch. Cover crop is growing nicely in the sites I am resting this year. Second Pic is Competition Site #1, a 30' x 40' site, threw in a little more composted horse poop in this one to polish it off. The sites behind the Comp. site will be where we have our 150 SQFT contest plant, Old Seed contest plant and some orange ones for selling purposes. Pic 3 shows Competition sites 6 thru 9 (35 x 30) all tucked in for the rain. Soils in these sites have been worked the most years at this patch and are fairly well dialed in. The last pic is Comp. Site 10 (30 x 40) with more resting sites behind it. I wanted to see what the cover crop would do for a site I use this year. All in all, the patch looks pretty good as we approach germination time. Not expecting any miracles this year but still think we can give my personal record a push in the right direction. Pic #1
