The pumpkin mounds are also known as soil mounds. Wilmer plants the pumpkin mounds as a soil protection measure. The pumpkin mounds are to prevent soil erosion. The soil in the pumpkin mounds is important because it adds organic matter to the soil, which increases the moisture content and makes it easier for the plants to grow.
Soil erosion happens when soil moves away from a place where it is being held, like a creek bed, riverbed, or field. In order for the soil to move, water needs to flow through the soil. When the soil is wet, water can easily move through the soil. When the soil is dry, water can’t flow through the soil and soil erosion occurs.
