busy vegetable day

today is grey, everyone here is coughing and has somehow ended up not at school - it was meant to be my day at the allotment...

so with soil and seedlings in my mind we've spent morning making tiny flags for our own special seedling pots and planted the biggest seeds we could find, for me the most exciting plants on the veg patch, THE PUMPKINS AND SQUASHES



we've planted 25 so may need to build an extension in the Autumn just to store them - lets be optimistic about our growing skills!

lots of other babies are doing well too - lettuces, sunflowers, sweetpeas, tomatoes, cabbages and caulis are all still safely inside away from slugs and weather...



last year we lost lots of things to the local wildlife, but I'm sure waving this bag at them all this year will make the difference!    



slugs however, as everyone knows, can't read...
