Today I planted out my brassicas. Due to the weed suppressant fabric the ground was clean of weeds so I was able to get started straight away, needing only a knife and a dibber to cut a slit in the plastic and plant the seedlings.
The ground was moist despite the dry week, although I did water them in, cover with a net and apply slug control.
Once they are sitting up I will deploy the brassica collars to fend off the cabbage root fly.
We also picked our first strawberries (Marshmello) today:
Some redcurrants and raspberries were ready too!
These pictures are to prove to Cathy in Grenoble that we are only 4 weeks behind here in Edinburgh!
And just in case you were wondering how our bathroom ended up, here are the after pictures:
We are very pleased and very clean!
