Innies and Outies!
Strawbs are here at last. At least they are indoors. Our outdoor berries still have a way to go. Last year was my first go at growing strawberries from some runners taken from Grandpas garden (I did have his permission). To be honest I was somewhat underwhelmed by the result - mostly because the birds got there before me and then the children - and then the slugs!
This year I potted some Elsantas to go by the back door. Only I kept forgetting to bring them down the garden and they stayed on the shelf in the greenhouse - and I am so glad that they did because now Ive got strawberries (almost).
With any luck this might be on my breakfast by the weekend - wahey! BH has very kindly bedded up the outdoor strawbs with plenty of straw today and im going to give them a feed and net them from birds - but still...I think next year they're going in pots and straight in the greenhouse.
On another note, here was my favourity garden moment of the day. These geraniums are at their best at the moment, another week and they start to flop and need chopping back. It was particularly windy and I couldnt resist grabbing a pic of them - this gardening malarkey has turned me into a right sucker for a bloom!
