Strawberry bed and rhubarb 

Finished making and planting the new strawberry bed next to the shed. We don’t seem to be able to grow strawberries in the polycrub, they grow well but the fruit tastes a bit mouldy which tends to spoil the enjoyment. So have made a raised bed next to the shed, south West facing and with a bit of shelter from the polycrub and planted the strawberries.  We’ll see how they get on.


Rhubarb is starting to come into leaf – always a sign that spring is on the way – so have given it a bit of a boost by covering the whole area with some compost/manure from the midden. 

Also tidied up in the polycrub, planted some rosemary, manured the fruit trees.
