    Looks like a gift of pumpkins, lucky you!

    For Gardener Nic,
    After your Wordless Wednesday, how about a thought for Thursday.
    On your garden plot, when digging or weeding, you unearth a worm.
    Would you, maybe, (A) carefully move it to another part of the garden,
    or (B) leave it for a roving robin lerking for lunch, or during the year.
    (C) do both? And the other creepy’s in there.

    How nice it is to have caring sharing neighbours who spread the plant love. I also have one, and although he will likely never read this, I am very grateful to have him.
    Congratulations on yours, and please nurture them.

    Greg – I might just cry if I was given that many pumpkin plants! These beauties are summer cabbages

    Dad – you’re so random, I love it! I’ve probably done both although not consciously. Worms are my friends at the allotment so if I unearth one I’m more likely to tuck it back up than say, a grub, which has been know on occasion to be willingly sacrificed for the sake of a visit from a Robin.

    Fiona – Dave’s wonderfully generous when it comes to sharing plants (I certainly wouldn’t ever have any brassicas without him). The plants are nicely netted now so I’m hoping for a caterpillar free harvest at the end of the summer :o)

      Sorry for getting that wrong, how embarassing! but cabbages are nice too.
      I must stop seeing all plants as just different types of pumpkin.

        I saw exactly why you thought pumpkin – that deceptively round leaf at the front I think. I have just one pumpkin plant this year and that’s enough. It’s not doing much yet though unlike it’s courgette neighbours.

        your absolutely right it was the round leaf that fooled me. By the way I like
        your Dad’s thought for thursday idea, especially the multiple choice quiz approach, I wish I had thought of it.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
