Fruit growing

Alyssa has her own little strawberry patch which she's had for a few years now. It's just outside the door so that they are easy to pick but unfortunately, the slugs seems to be enjoying them too.

I asked my Grandad if he had any advice seeing as he used to grow them for decades.

"I'll come round at sunrise everyday and eat them all first."

Thanks Grandad!

Have also been doing a bit of 'cupboard clearing' so made a sponge from a packet sponge mix. The jam inside was made in the breadmaker and it was so easy so will definitely be doing that again ~ if the home grown strawberries make it as far as the kitchen.
