Tilled the Pumpkin Patch and Added Amendments

Today I tilled the planting areas and add some gypsum (for calcium), iron and manganese to the soil.  I also added some sugar to help get the soil biology going.  Last fall some of the patch wasn't tilled so I spent particular time tilling the areas were the sorghum sudan grass was still standing.  That will give it a month to get broken down until I put my plants in the soil.

Overall the soil looked pretty good.  I saw some of the biggest worms in the patch that I have ever seen in my soil where the sudan grass was located.
