Operation Veggie Patch update - June

A few weeks ago, I planted some strawberries. I'm happy to report that they are very happy in their new home and are growing nicely!

There are new shoots coming off the base of the plant and I am expecting these plants to be a nice size when it comes time to fruit.

Remember my compost bin that I started back in April? It's breaking down very nicely!!  Come spring, this will be very handy to dig into the garden when I am ready to start planting my herbs and tomatoes.

My youngest has been collecting the Jamie Oliver gardening book and equipment because she is very keen on gardening with me. She loves pulling up weeds and digging in the garden. I love that this is something we can do together.
