Alongside the Runner beans, 11 Marrows have been planted. The lower end of the L-shape will be taken up with squashes and pumpkins in between the potato ranks. Cucumbers, Black eyed beans, melons, tomatoes and several other seedlings still remain in my poly tunnel for protection from the current cooler night time temperatures.

Another failure to date was my earlier idea to use the raised beds at the lower end of N2 Plot as seed beds. Lettuce and Cabbages, sown into them in late March were devoured by slugs/snails, so a change of plan was to sow parsnips into one of the beds using the remaining beds to re-plant various "thinnings" later in the season. These will be surrounded by slug pellets which I don't use on open ground.
