Spring Pumpkin Growing Checklist

One month until seed starting time. Seems like a lot of time but it always flys by and there is a lot to do.  Seems like if you get behind early in the season there is never a way to make it up later.
  • Clean our "grow closest" to make room for plants
  • Test grow lights and seed starting heat mat
  • Warm ProMix growing medium
  • Get castings from worm bins
  • Get soil test back and ask the smartest guys in Colorado and the world what I should be amending my soil with
  • Amend soil and till the ground.
  • Get hoop houses into shape and put on new plastic
  • Sow some winter rye into the patch
  • Soak and sand seeds on April 15th.
