No, these aren’t our pumpkins. But these are:
I went to visit my uncle’s farm last weekend. They are having a big fall event with tons of pumpkins, gourds, indian corn, hay rides, and more. We helped out some in preparation for the big kick-off.
Relating back to our garden, I brought back a truck full of manure from the farm. It’s still sitting in the back of the truck, and I don’t know how happy the neighbors are going to be when we spread it on! A truck load isn’t really that much, and ideally I’d like to get two or three more before next spring. A neighbor of ours knows someone who has sheep, and so this spring we’re going to go out there to get some sheep manure. Supposedly, that’s the best you can get – it decomposes really quickly, and it makes for a great fertilizer.
