    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.

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
