Planted out squashes and pumpkins

Yesterday I planted out my young butternut squash and pumpkin plants. Not sure if they are still there, as it is mizzling and warm: perfect slug weather. 

Some of the aubergine plants in the greenhouse have been munched, but I think there are enough left.  Leaving a row of cabbages in there as bait seems to help. 

A lot of volunteer squashpumpkinthings are coming up in the compost that I brought into the beds from the wormery.  I may allow a few of them to grow to fruition, just to find out what they are since they seem so keen.
