Just been on Met office website and for this area it says there maybe a risk of ground frost in rural areas . I am not in a rural area so do you think it will be safe to leave them as it's getting dark now too  :D

Oh fling some fleece or an old sheet over them and keep your fingers crossed - someone has to make up their mind  ::)  :nowink:

Remember to take it off 1st thing, though.

Ma - its getting late - if frost is only hitting rural (maybe) then you'll probably get away with it.

If not and your squash get ruined -   I'm guessing that you won't be holidaying in North Devon next year, and any info. I've given about the location of my allotment was a lie, so you'll never find me....  ;)

Cheers,
balders

 :lol: :lol: I know where you is Baldy so look out  :D

I think it should be ok and then tomorrow I will set about harvesting them. What happens to them if the frost gets them anyway? Do they go all mushy  ???

Balders - Like that will ever happen especially after the toilet humour on the song title thread  :wacko:

OK Ma so where the Bleeping hell have you been, we have all been worried about you as you seemed to have fallen off the planet and you have a bad case of Baldersiters and have not been keeping up to date on your diary  :nowink:

He's (cadalot) obsessed with diaries.. I'm surprised MOS gets to do any gardening as all her time seems to be taken up with keeping Alan under (some sort of) control...
Ma has probably been gardening...
Cheers,
Balders

As all the foliage had died down, I harvested mine today and will leave  them by the window of my shed to cure. They will get some sunshine there. 17 kilos altogether. Well pleased!  :D

Alan I've been keeping my head down after another incident on the plot. I won't bore you with the details but it upset me. I hold my hands up for the lack of diary content and will be duly reprimanded for that. We have also been catching up on the garden as it has been somewhat neglected but all is in order now  :D

As long as you and Pa are OK that's the main thing .....

I look forward to a catch up and pictures on your diary especially as you have been doing a lot of work down there. At the end of the day you now have a plot at the end of your gated you can walk too and you have been actively working. Ignore who ever is giving a hear time, there is always one or two like that on every site.

We have made lots of changes on our new plot and the top part is looking good. Still have lots to do but have to wait for the veg that the previous owners have on there to be removed before we can get stuck in. At least we got a few months to sort it now.
