Last year and the year before I tried to sow pumpkins (uchiki kuri, the pumpkin which tasts so good in all sorts of dishes). Unfortunately it didn't work out well, the plants simply died or were eaten. This year wasn't any different. because of the cold nights all the plants died. I had put al the remaining seeds in the ground and now every seed became a little plant and stayed alive! So now I have a pumpkin field taking over the allotment. But with a lot of pumpkins :-)
I harvested two small cabbages because I discovered caterpillars. I rather have small ones than nothing. The runnerbeans have beautiful flowers now, I keep looking at them!
