This morning we picked and ate in the garden or first home grown strawberries. They were delicious. Even F thought so. She kept going back to the baskets, pointing to them and shout more.As I mentioned previously, this is our first proper garden. I would love to grow lots of fruit and veg in my garden, as well as flowers for cutting. This year we started small though. I’ve planted a red currant bush in the hope of fruit in a year or two, strawberries in two hanging baskets, some green beans and a mini herb garden, in a pot nearer the kitchen door.
Since I showed you the photos last week the strawberries have really turned red. I was showing them to F when she decided to pick one for herself! I let her eat this one and it was shortly followed by shouts of more. So I fetched her a bowl and we picked our first crop and ate them right there in the garden.
Since last weeks photos, my first (and I think only) iris has bloomed. Isn’t it beautiful? I planted three pots of them and was dreaming of cutting some to enjoy inside but the others are either very behind or just not growing well. Any tips of growing irises?
