John Gerdes: Midway City, 2004

Good morning, Growers!

I came across this image of John Gerdes' mound in 2004, and thought it was very educational. One of the issues facing giant pumpkin growers is soil compaction. Please note the pieces of plywood to help prevent compacting of the soil around the mound and plant.

Have a great week-end!
