My friendly visitor

While digging up my cabbages a couple of weeks ago, I unearthed a very welcome guest to the veg patch. Meet my little friend Toadie! He's currently living in a pile of turf that has been dug up to expand the patch. The eventual plan will be to convert an old tree trunk into a more permanent home for him.

The veg patch is now bursting at the seams and my next project is to work out the "footprint" of each veg. Hopefully this will help me be a bit more organised with my planting next year. In particular, the butternut squash are creeping over the sides of my raised bed. A big lesson learned is to plan ahead for when the plants are fully grown, as opposed to cramming in as many seedlings as possible.
