Belated Christmas present

It’s hardly been going to the plot weather, hence the complete lack of posts. But I did go and check my allotment yesterday, as the gales have caused quite a lot of damage locally. Nothing was wrong there, but look at this:

allotment strawberry bed My new ‘free form’ strawberry bed! It’s been built alongside the path and to abut (but not touch) the asparagus bed, so it’s an odd shape but I love it.

Now I just need to drag OH to the plot again so we can bed it down properly, then it’s my job to fill it with manure, wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow … I hope the strawberries appreciate the efforts we’re going to!

    It’s great! I have plans to make a new strawberry bed at the allotment, but I need to find some time and also a dry-ish window in the weather. It will all be worth it when we’re picking bowlfuls of strawberries in July though!

    Nice to keep them all contained and they will love the manure and will praise your wheelbarrow hard work by growing nice plump and tasty! 🙂
