Kevin came out to the allotment today with the girls after school.They showed him where the pumpkins were planted and he put his one in near theirs,they also took him up to see the hens.They spent some time practising their hen calls as the hens did not take too much notice of them!
I only took one photo! The second plot is now dug over completely and set into beds ready for planting out.I put in 2 courgette plants and one outdoor cucumber into the old cold frame which had been filled with horse manure a few weeks ago. I watered the corn some of which is still a bit sorry looking.I also put out 4 squash plants which were in the greenhouse as some of the ones already out had died off in the cold of the past few weeks.
I bought 2 cans of cheap beer in one of the discount retailers for the slug pubs but forgot to take out the containers, the slugs are very much in evidence for the last few days so they have free rein until tomorrow.
