The BBC's Instant Gardener

This promises to be a very interesting session and is open to everyone

Has anyone seen these missing squashes from Plot 98?

Message from Stephen Kirby-Smith:-

"Two of my squashes went missing between 7th and 12th September. The pumpkins are still there and only my squashes were taken which are the plants I am most proud of this year. The gate of my allotment is intact, there are no points of forced entry to my allotment. There is only one possible entrance which is safe enough to get in through which is from plot 97.  There is certainly no evidence of it being eaten by an animal.

I have informed the council allotment team and logged it with the police. 
Crime reference K120403-2017"
