You may remember this guest post from last year in which rycamor talks about his amazing Tan Cheese pumpkins.
Since they blew my Seminole pumpkins away in terms of productivity last year, I decided to plant my own in the food forest this year:
I planted that pair on top of giant chunks of buried rotten oak (thanks for the idea, Leon) along with fresh hot manure and I’m hoping they’ll grow irrigation-free all summer.
I also planted a bunch of other seeds in various places… some on top of rotten wood, some in just the ground and some with just manure. We’ll see what happens. If rycamor beats me in yields this year I’m going to be gravely disappointed.
If you’re ready to start your OWN food forest, buy my book!
