Allotment Update: May 2016

Unknown
It is amazing what you can do in the two hours that your children nap. To try and keep on top of the garden (and get some exercise) my husband and I have been taking it in turns to go up to the allotment during our twins' afternoon nap time. I am so thankful that they are now predictable sleepers (and that my husband regularly works from home).
He runs and I cycle. It's only about 3 miles but it's uphill all the way and a decent workout. Once there, it is an hour of digging, weeding, planting, watering then we meet up at a park half the way between the allotment and our home. We manage about 3 visits a week in total which is really helping to keep on top of things.
So far on our balcony I have loads of seedlings growing that are almost ready to plant out: celery, romanesco, cauliflower, butternut squash, tomatoes, cucamelons, cucumbers, Swiss chard, fennel, aubergines.
For the first time ever, something keeps eating the courgette plants in the allotment. I have now planted them for the third time. I'm not sure if it's birds, slugs, caterpillars, mice... Any advice on what to do?
Our plot looks pretty bare at the moment. Our neighbours have potatoes, beans and onions growing at great speed and filling the place up. I really need to get organised next year and plant some things to fill the gap between November and March.

These are cucamelons in the first picture - who knew these even existed?!



My courgette seedlings keep getting eaten. This is the 3rd time I have planted them out :(
Romanesco busting out of their shell. Planted them out...let's hope they survive.
My balcony is FULL!
My neighbour's garden, definitely a pro.
My patch. Lots of small flower and plant seedling making an appearance but overall a bit bare.

    Indian drug regulators have seized more than 2,300 kg of illegal Chinese bulk drugs awaiting dispatch to the pharmaceutical industry for use in formulating drugs sold in retail medicine shops.
    If used in formulation, such unauthorised bulk drugs — raw material for tablets, capsules and syrups — pose health risks to patients as their quality remains suspect. Import of bulk drugs requires registration certificate and import license.
