Big Changes in Huntington Beach
Good afternoon, Growers!
Regular readers of this blog will notice quite a change in my patch in Huntington Beach.
- Trimmed roughly 25% of the vine in order to be able to move around it.
- Cut the tips off of the major vines, and then buried these tips under 2-3 shovelfuls of dirt.
- Installed a drip irrigation system to water the buried vine tips in order to encourage rooting of these tips.
- Put the biggest pumpkin on an improvised platform of wood 2 x 4s, and have begun to shade it with a very simple 4 pole, binder clips, and shade cloth canopy.
I'll keep you updated!
