Peat Moss for the Pumpkin Patch
Today I spread 7 large bales of peat moss over the pumpkin patch. Peat moss is an excellent soil conditioner, loosens up clay soils like I have an helps to increase the cation exchange capacity of the soil. The peat moss for now was just put on top of the soil to help keep it moist as I germinate a 2nd round of sorghum sudan grass. In a month I'll till it into the soil with the grass so it can be broken down in the soil all winter.
