Clearing a Pumpkin Patch–October 20, 2011

To grow a giant pumpkin for next year’s Truro Ag Fair, we decided to clear a patch behind the garden. First all the weeds needed to be pulled, piled up and then discarded. The children worked hard and took turns with hand cultivators and rakes to loosen the dirt and the weeds. Some worms were found and tossed into the garden.

  • clear area using hand cultivators and rakes
  • discard weeds in compost area
  • add any worms to garden
