What a Load of Manure!
Some basics here for the new grower. It all starts with a load of manure!
I like to use 8-year-old horse and sawdust from a local horse farm. It looks like brown fluffy soil. That is what you are looking for, not the stinky stuff that smells like poo! If it has that strong odor, then it needs to go back into a compost pile for a year or so.
There is a lot of confusion about what manure really is and how to use it.

Tips From Mark on Growing
First, you need to find a sunny location for 8 hours of sun a day or more is best. 6 hours a day will produce a pumpkin, however the more sun the better. You can grow watermelons/tomatoes/cucumbers/beans/ whatever you may choose to grow for the dinner table.
So most of us test our soil for better results.
The more serious growers we like to till our soil and amend to our soil test results each season. We use walk boards to ensure we don’t compact the soil. When growing on sand you may not need as many walk boards but still not a bad idea to use them. We train the vines & prune the plant as it grows, all tertiary vines are terminated from the secondary vines. Our goal is to grow as big as a plant as possible by early to mid-June. Then as the female flowers(baby pumpkin)appear on the plant we start to shift to fruit growing mode. The biggest challenge becomes keeping the bugs & critters from destroying the plant. This is where most not so serious gardeners lose the battle. If you choose organic or other methods? You must stop the bugs! I always ask my Children.” what’s the worst thing that bugs do”? They bug you !! You must deal with the bugs or game over by early July in most areas.
