I've calculated that for 150 square feet to water 1" onto each half every other day would require a 55 gallon drum per day filled with 47 gallons of water. I think during the summer, if the roots are healthy 1 inch on half the patch every other day would be reasonable. I could do a less deep 1/2 inch watering across the entire patch. This might be even better. Looking back at my previous diaries I am not impressed with my growing. I am really unimpressed. I am inclined to think 1/2 inch spread evenly over the entire patch would be best. If I wanted to get very fancy I could alternate the "fertigation" between chelated water soluble chemical fertilizer and the other half of the plant getting manure/compost tea. It might be easier to play around with watering/fertilizing schemes on tomatoes rather than pumpkins. Hmm.

Heaven's Door... Knock, knock, knocking. Still so far from getting in.
