Yes sorry about the sideway pictures, I'm new at taking pictures on my new tablet, when I took the pictures they where the right way up, but when I sent them to this site they ended up sideways , do you know how you correct them?

Hi Joe and Bob, just thought I'd show you a picture of the end result, this is just one half of the raised bed, it took a tone bag of top soil mixed with compost and manure, but it was worth the hard work

My strawberries are green at the moment but looking forward to eating them when they are ready mmm, looking forward to your photo's Marion, your garden sounds lovely, in the north it's blue sky but the wind is cool, at least it's dry for us gardeners , can't believe its so light at 9.30pm I love Spring and summer

Are slug pellets safe to put around your strawberry plants?, do they affect your fruit?

Hi Marion, just finished putting all my new plants in, I've ordered more than I thought , so I will have to make room for five more Gazanias, can't wait for them to flower and send you photo's, my strawberry plants are a lot larger this year, must be something in the rain ha, just checked in my green house and my curly Kale seeds are germinating , my last lot got over heated (learnt my lesson), putting my feet up for five minutes then it's time to make tea mmmm what Shall I have , hope your well Marion glad it's stayed fine for you too
