Back from a week away, and everything took off in my absence. The beans (borlotti and runner) flew up the stakes. Lettuces growing, turnips ready for harvest, carrots needing thinning. Courgettes are tiny but all there - first should be ready in a few days. The ones in planters doing better than the ones in the soil.

Also, we have froglets! The tadpoles have front and back legs, and some of the tails are gone. They are much less shy, and very lively - we fed them loads of slugs, so they should be growing well.

The slugs ate the flowers that Dara planted on our dear departed cat Bitsy's grave. So now we're on a mission to find slugs, and feed them to the frogs....
