    Even looking at that picture is making my back ache!

    Your cleared corner is most impressive however

    Yes, it's too cold for squash and pumpkins to go outside yet

    Yes.

    I put my tester out last weekend, I popped a two layer white net over it to try and protect it....I'll find out tomorrow whether it worked or not.

    I put 2 pumpkins out today. Fingers crossed they'll be ok. It is forecast to be warmer than it has been at night in the greenhouse over the last few weeks and they've been fine in there.

    Son-in-law put his out last week. He bought some more yesterday! Nagging Ma-in-law told him not to put them out till June and meantime to take them out in the day and back at night.
