A Frenzy of Activity

We had a lovely bout of rain this morning and it made the ground good to dig. The last quarter of Plot 7 is now dug and the beanpoles are erected over a trench filled with mushroom compost. 11 Scarlet Empire runner beans have germinated, we're hoping they'll be joined by one more!
This is a small video of our friend Malcolm's compost bin - the ants have an amazing nest in there! Hope they stay on his plot and keep away from our strawberries. We have our own ants - they tend to be red!
These are our year 3 strawberries.
And this lovely little bunch is on our year-old plants. We're hoping we get to eat that big one very soon.

  1. Wow your strawberry is nearly ready. Paul is looking at his tiny tomatoes everyday but it will be a long time til they are ready to eat. Those ants were busy!

  2. Wow your strawberries are fantastic. Your plots look so neat. Its hard to keep our edges tidy now that the rabbit wire is up, at our plot.

    1. Jamie is very good at edges. My attempts are much more casual and then Jamie tidies up after me 😃
