    Apparently it's going to be a good yr for them , big fat juicy ones due to cool long winter
    Well, we have a lot of strawberry plants but the frost caught the first flush of blossom...I thought they had leafed up well over winter!
    Fingers crossed then!

        • ^I've given up trying to open jars of beetroot. I rather cheat and just pass them straight to Mr Snoop with a warning to watch out for the juice...

              • I have strawberries outdoors and they are covered in blossom this year.
                I have some plants in a couple of window boxes in the greenhouse.
                The berries are beginning to turn now.

                And when your back stops aching,
                And your hands begin to harden.
                You will find yourself a partner,
                In the glory of the garden.

                        • Morning Mr Bones and all. I'll have another cuppa, thanks Mr B

                          The sky is completely overcast here, a solid blanket of cloud, not a chance of the sun peeking through that. It's cooler too but I can't be precise, the battery has gone on the outside thermometer - it's an AAA so doesn't last long. Need to think about getting rechargeables for it maybe...

                          • Morning all. Up supposedly with the lark. Actually, I did get up but I didn't do what I meant to. I have absolutely no willpower it would seem!

                            Otherwise all good, apart from the fact that my hand is being attacked by Frankie, whose favourite hiding place turns out to be underneath my computer stand. He's clearly doing a better job of dusting in there than I am. The shame of it. Roll on the day he's too big to fit under there.

                            Very busy day today. And tomorrow, but then it's all calming down a bit.

                            Catch you all later. Have a great day. With lots of smiles, naturally.

                            • Morning a cool start to the day and some rain due soon so I've been in the garden earlier picking what I needed for todays meals. It sounds like Frankie is settling in nicely Snoop.

                              Enjoy your visit Mr B
