My 430 Clayton is a good plant. 5 gallon bucket is same distance from the the camera as the pumpkin.

Hard to photo.

I did no burn pit here and very little prep. It seems to like my "top secret" method. More than anything else, the burn pit idea needs modification . I think the wood ash and soil acidity etc are not meshing well. Although it does have some merit I need to be careful to make it healthier for roots. The wood ash, if I dont mix it well, the calcium is probably at to high a ph and unavailable, and the areas with added organics, the ph is probably too low. I mean, something is getting messed up. I should probably let nature do more of the work. I need to remember to keep things biologically friendly/root friendly.
