Had my very first strawberries from the garden to eat tonight - only 3, all various sizes, but very sweet and even more special as I have been tending them carefully and put them on a bed of straw at the weekend and bought a net to cover them from the birds.  
So satisfying . . .  what to grow next I wonder . . .  Very Happy

Home grown strawberries are brilliant.  We only stopped because ants moved in and made the strawberry thingy (we had a giant tub thing specially for strawberries in the green house - which eliminates birds) their permanent home.  That and the fact that I couldn't eat all the strawbs that we were getting and the strawberries were being knawed as well!

We are attempting to grow some beans and peas in a pot - we only have a small yard.  The beans are slightly disappointing but one of the pea plants is doing very well.  But my delight this year are my nasturtiums!  They usually get ravaged by blackfly but they have been ignored this year and are looking gorgeous, and the haven't even flowered yet!  And I am very proud of the tray of limp petunias that I rescued from B and Q for 50p, which are now filling a hanging basket.

We're attempting tomatoes, as George is very fond of them. Well, Claire is - I loathe gardening and can kill a plant just by looking at it!

Rowers, have you tried eating nasturtiums in salad?  The flowers look lovely as a garnish
