Compost for the Pumpkin Patch
Today I picked up 2.5 yards of compost and put down two nice piles into the patch mixed with some shreaded leaves from the yard and grass clippings from the neighbor. I hope to till these in next month. In the spring I'll put in another 2.5 to 4 yards. I'd like to see my organic matter come up another 3% by planting time next year. The compost that I got today wasn't fully composted but was very nice horse manure with a lot of alfalfa in it. Should be ready in another 1.5 months.
