 What it all means

Well I’m still trying to decipher all of it, but it is fair to say the soil isn’t as good as it could be and I think I was quite lucky to grow a 184.5kg pumpkin in the soil as it was last season.

What it does mean though is I have a starting point in knowing how the soil is.  I can now try and improve it to make it a more optimum growing condition for giant pumpkins.

I’ll be going over what I will be doing at a later date, but would love your feedback on these results, let me know what you think in the comments below.
