Circumstances prevented Jacob from getting the pumpkins and watermelons planted on Saturday, then we had 2 days of rain. But we got them in the ground today. Late start, but they are in bigger pots with great root systems. Leaves are lighter color due to cold temps and lack of sun. We need to get more soil tilled in the big watermelon house and spread more weed fabric. Then Jacob will hit the weeds outside the hoops with glyphosate. Corn hasn't sprouted yet, so we can get a good knockdown on the early weeds. We have 2 watermelons and one pumpkin is reserve for potential problems. 2 long gourds and 4 field pumpkins are ready to go to bigger pots. Giant cantaloupe seeds get started tomorrow. We have the best looking tomato and pepper seedlings ever. Might have a couple big Zacs to try for competition size.
