June 12th - hot, hot, hot!

Seedlings getting some fresh air after growing in the shed.
Lots more strawberries and they're getting bigger!

Some of the seeds were only planted last week and have shot up in the sun.

The strawberry runners we moved to the top bed are enjoying their new position and it looks like we'll have a good crop.
The group enjoyed strawberries at lunch time and took some home.

One of the group is taking some time off so brought in some goodies to share.  We had a delicious lunch.

It was very hot so we couldn't work too long in the sun.  We had lots of cold drinks and spent some time in the shade.  The grass round the tree got a good cut!  We managed to plant out some tomatoes and dwarf French beans, and we potted on some pepper seedlings given to us by another plot holder. There was a manure delivery so we got a couple of wheelbarrow loads to improve our soil.  

Lots and lots of watering.

We were all very happy when our new parasol arrived!
The next job is tidying up the top plot!
