Next steps will be to finish off the new hoop houses I started two weeks ago, add the hail netting structure and put in two new sprinkler heads.

The Patch is Tilled and We Are Almost Ready to Roll
I tilled my amendments into the pumpkin patch today. Add 17 pounds of gypsum, 35 pounds of alfalfa meal, 2 pounds of magnesium sulfate, 20 pounds of PAM, winter rye grass, two bags of peralite, 1 bag of vermiculite, 2 pounds of epsom salts and about 3 1/2 yards of very old composted cow manure. I really like the tilth of the soil and where things have come from 1.5 years ago when I started the patch. For some reason my potassium shot up in my last soil test but for the most part, after the amendments I have added, we should be in good shape this season.
