We had a visit from Veg Cities Hull today... ...

Even with our tiny pond at the allotment, we've got several resident frogs. This autumn and winter we're planning to build a bigger pond. It's won't be deep, but having a bigger pond will attract even more wildlife and diversity that will be sure to benefit our crops.

The perfect autumn activity for small groups of children in October - daffodil bulb planting. Hopefully these children will be able to see the reward of their efforts in March.

If you're passing by Constable Allotment, we've still got fresh produce. Lots of cucumbers, a few tomatoes and one or two courgettes. You can also come and guess the weight of our pumpkin for 20p.

A big thank you to Wayne from @sowseedsltd in South Cave - for donating lots of lovely green manure seeds and winter greens to help us make our soil more productive and give us salad leaves throughout the winter.

Every year we get a few odd-shaped tomatoes at the allotment. Last year we had one resembling a little duck, and this year - a return of the duck!.. even with a pointy beak this time!

We've had a bumper crop of tomatoes this year, sometimes getting more than 5 kilos a week! Sungold, Alisa Craig, Bumblebee and Marmande have all been popular. We hope you've enjoyed them. There are still a one or two left, but soon the plants will be coming out and going in the compost heap.

Come and guess the weight of our giant pumpkin. 20p a guess, the winner gets a prize!
Lausanne could lift our biggest last year - when it was 13kg, but this year it's too heavy!
