Let the Season Begin!

It never really feels like the season has started until the pumpkin patch is tilled.  I did just that today.  Next step: start the seeds on April 15th.

Today I tilled in about 70lbs gypsum, 2lbs kelp meal, 4 bails of peat moss, 2lbs sugar, manganese, 20lbs humid acid and  20lbs azomite.  The soil looked very good.  In the next few days I'll plant a cover crop of winter rye in all but the planting area.  That will be tilled under in June when the vines start running.
