Something has been feasting on our Corn

Been a few weeks since I last went to our Allotment. 

We went to the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show last Sunday & it was a great day out. 

Dug up some Charlotte spuds to have for dinner with a quiche. 
Something has stripped our Sweetcorn! 

Quite a few have gone, the leftovers are all over the soil.
The evidence is clear on the path, I suspect Squirrels are the culprits. 
We have seen them running off with a few cobs before. 
Today's Harvest:
Charlotte potatoes,
Lady Christl potatoes,
Autumn Raspberries,
Cucumbers too.
I also tried a windfall Apple and it was lovely and sweet. 
Only spent an hour today, watered the greenhouse, harvesting & a bit of clearing. 
Its getting colder now, you can tell by the shadow that the sun is lower in the sky now.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
