Now is the Time to Start for Next Season
Seems like the season is done, but next season is already starting. 70% of your success or failure right now is going to be determined by what you do right now. Getting the soil ready during October and making sure the nutrients that you need for next season's plants are in the soil is going to determine in a big way how big that pumpkin is going to grow next year. After getting a soil test you are going to want to add the appropriate organic material to your patch. I'll be adding some compost and shredded leaves to the soil and tilling that in during the next couple of weeks. If the weather is good, I hope to plant a cover crop as well.
