Courgettes and pumpkins are planted out

The round courgettes and pumpkins (as well as 2 red squash) are now in their final positions, planted around the potato plants that are springing up all over the place!

I’m not sure whether I have left enough space in between them, or which way they will grow – only time will tell!
