I’m nearly done planting out all the pumpkins, sunflowers and maize in the pumpkin garden. Only a few late seedlings left.

I started in the middle with some sunflowers, then spiraled outwards with pumpkins, squash and more sunflowers and then finished off with a ring of raised beds with maize.

I have four main crop circles. One is the caged garden which remains in the same place from year to year. The others are the two mixed vegetable patches and the pumpkin garden. These three rotate between the three circles. Within the mixed vegetable gardens I try to rotate the crops too.
