Allotment day - Before the frost....

 It's still bright and sunny during the day (though not necessarily very warm) but tonight a sharp frost is forecast - the first of the winter.
We're hoping to keep things growing still at the allotment so moved the netting from the squash (too cold for that now) and placed it over a patch of onions, turnips and beetroot - for these it may give enough warmth to see them through a cold spell.

There isn't anything that can really help these very late French beans which have just started to set.

and here's our helper keeping a eye on the parsnips.
