May update part 3

Buddy posing for the camera!
Got the courgettes planted onto half of the sweetcorn bed - There are 8 plants 1n here....just as well we like courgettes alot!
The sweet peas have started producing flowers, and these 2 coloured varieties smell lovely
I sowed some peas in root trainers then planted them out. they have grown away really well, however the ones I sowed straight into the bed germinated well but then the pigeons spotted them and have nibbled every single one - I covered them in fleece and it looks like they will be ok. The pigeons have not bothered with the ones I started off int he greenhouse.
Planted out the climbing french beans & sowed runner beans direct on the other side of the frame.
This is a view down the plot.
Harvest time, broad beans, mixed salad leaves & carrots.....yum yum!

Haven't you been busy. Looking good. My dog isn't allotment trained yet, and we have foxes there.

8 courgettes!!! Are you a pickle maker?
