Sun & strawberries......

Welcome aboard to the new followers-I'm always so surprised  pleased when people see something here that appeals to them.

As alluded to in my last post, we have moved our strawberry beds-we have had two 1.2m x 1.2m raised beds along the southern boundary of our vegie garden (plus 1 other bed used last year for onions) and decided to move them & better utilise the space.

All three beds have been moved to the eastern side of the vegie garden and the middle bed has the Cambridge Rival variety, whereas the two outside bed will have the Aroma variety ( we have enough runners from one of the old beds to now create the new one as well).

The space that has been freed up will allow us to put in a 5th water tank plus a 3m x 3m garden the future when we can afford to!

We are coming to the end of our 3rd year of living here and we have worked out the best way of using our acre of land. Many of the plans will wait until we have either the time or money required to bring them to fruition...but that just means we will appreciate it even more when it happens!

We will add a compacted gravel path around the beds

Committee of Management keen to destroy transplanted strawberries assist.


  1. You look organised Deez, it will be interesting to see how they go.

    1. Hopefully well Rose-some of these strawberry plants are enjoying their 3rd position since we first got them! :)

  2. I love how neat your garden looks, Deezy. We got our watersaver garden today so will be setting it up soon. It is getting very dry here so it will come in handy not having to water so much.

    I love your Committee of Management! :-)

    1. I'm aiming for neat and easy to maintain Chel....the winter weeds make it difficult though!

      I'll look forward to seeing your watersaver garden on your blog. ;)

      The Committee of Management are very entertaining- I could watch their antics for hours!

  3. Love those raised beds and I laughed out loud about the hen photo caption!

    1. They always closely "supervise" my efforts in the vegie area.... in the most helpful way of course! ;) The fact that I throw the odd insect or worm their way has nothing to do with my popularity at all. :D
