No risk for frost any more. In fact the last frost was many weeks ago. It’s definitely time to plant out the pumpkins, squash, cucumbers, gourds, maize, etc, and a little bit more of everything else too.

Each pumpkin plant gets an extra dose of old cow manure.

I need a lot more mulching material.

There is a variety of sunflowers in the center and randomly dispersed among the pumpkins. Hokkori (Hokkaido pumpkin) and other pumpkins spiral outwards, with maize (sweet corn) in raised beds around the edges (along with some garlic and a few perennials).

I could have started a couple of weeks earlier this year, but with the off and on weather, I figured it was best to stick to the traditional schedule.
