Well, it's a great chance to have the patches at home, despite the world coronavirus propagation and the quanrantine.
I can prepare carefully the 6 polytunnels and keep sowing thousands seeds and repot all young seedlings. Almost 5000 done now. I spread all lab recommandations in the pumpkin patch as you can see here. For tiny little rates, as copper, zinc, manganese and boron, I mixed them with enough water to cover the whole patch and use a blower directly on the soil.
Did it for each stuff, one by one. It took time but at least, I am sure it's nicely spread. For the rest, I simply used a gardening spoon and back Walking while spreading. Tilled and watered it and job was done.
It's finally sunny since a couple of days, soil is warming up slowly but surely.
Take care during this tough time.
