Tuesday 19th November 2013: After our hard work clearing last week it was nice to do some planting this week. We had some strawberry plants which had been kindly donated to us, so we put those in carefully at the front of the vegetable patch. We also had a pretty climbing plant to put in against the car park fence.

Sadly we are too late to plant any winter crops, so we will be retreating inside for some warmer activities until the spring.
