Thursday 20th October 2016 – Harvesting Pumpkins & Squashes!

Did you miss me? Sorry I’ve been away for so long. Work has been manic lately. But today I had a day off and it was dry!! So what better way to spend the day, then down on the allotment. Well I say the day, it was really only about an hour and a half. But it’s still good. My Pumpkins and various Squashes have been growing really well all by themselves. I’m sure Lottie and Dottie would be proud. Now that the leaves and the stems have all gone brown, it’s time to harvest them before the first of the frosts come soon. Once you’ve harvested them store them in a frost free place until you use them. I’ll keep mine in the greenhouse. It’s half term next week, so I’ll hopefully be able to get to the allotment and do stuff more often, but here is what I got up to today…..

    Good to see you back Claire. What a fine squash and pumpkin harvest, just in time for Hallowe’en ha! ha! Hard to believe the clocks go back an hour next weekend. I have finished harvesting and now it is just a case of tidying everything. Hopefully the weather will hold up for next week.
