Gary Tovey: Balancing Act
Good morning, Pumpkinistas!
The Orange Revolution continues! These pictures of a very clever and innovative way of planting and watering giant pumpkin vines were sent in by Gary Tovey. Note the path/configuration of Gary's soaker hoses. Judging by how green and healthy his plants are, it seems to be working very well.
"Hi Stuart,
Here's a few shots from our pumpkin patch. We have a pumpkin mound at each end with 2 plants in each. They seem to be doing well so far. We'll be thinning down to one plant in each mound shortly. We got a really late start, hopefully there's enough sunny days left in the season to grow something big.We've got some corn and tomatoes going too, we'll have to wait and see how everyone gets along.
