Case and point, this years pumpkin patch. With all the rain this June we did not get it planted until July.
And then.... well I didn't weed it very much. To be honest, maybe I weeded it once. And this is how it looked this October.
I had to do a little searching to see if I could harvest anything.
There wasn't much, especially since the plants had been affected by powdery mildew after all the moisture.
I believe the harvest from this patch is much better than my purposely plant patch.
