Corn and Cucurbits

So the low field had 4 rows of Double Standard and two rows of Black Jack popcorn.  Both varieties are open pollinated and I plan on saving seed.  I also drilled in a 75' row of flint corn on the other side of the Turkey Wheat, which is all that I harvested of flint last year!

So in the upper field I used the wheel hoes to mess up the remaining rye sod enough to put in one row of cucurbits.  This was a combination of seedlings and direct seeding.  Cucumbers, Zuchinni, Squash (Delicata and Butternut), and Cantaloupe.  The Cantaloupe seed was saved seed from last year.  I don't know if it was a hybrid or OP variety, so I am crossing my fingers that it turns out OK!
