Making the raspberry jam encouraged me to think again about maximising our berry fruit production. Strawberries are a real favourite o famine and I can remember when picking the strawberries was one of the chores. It is a bit hard to find sunny well drained spots, but today I planted some strawberry plants along the edge of the new green house, it is quite a raised area and with the plastic of the greenhouse behind it could be a nice warm spot. I have mulched well with straw, but will of course have to get a dropper line there before the weather warms up.

I also planted robust into the greenhouse. The mizuna has been great, but I think it is wanting to go to seed soon, so I need some replacement greens.
