This week we have been planting squash seeds and spreading compost!
We planted 98 squash seeds on Monday and 70 on Tuesday. There are lots of different varieties, including Sweet Dumpling, Buttercup, Green Hokkaido, Orange Summer, Custard White and Uchiki Kuri. We also planted a few Jack O'Lantern for Halloween.
We have been spreading compost on beds at the bottom and top of the field, as well as one of our new raised beds by the polytunnel. We planted 4 of our Sunflowers out in the polytunnel, and are hoping all our plants survive the cold nights we have been having. We even had a bit of snow on Monday!
