Slugs don't usually go for my strawberries until they start fruiting.
Did a quick repair today on the shed roof as the wind had torn the felt. Lots of small jobs done before it started to rain. Potted up some dahlias and sowed seeds in the GH.
There'a also a bird nesting in the shed, thought I so one fly out yesterday but didn't think much of it, found the nest today when I was hanging up my tools... There was a bundle of straw and stuff with a hole in the middle wedged in the corner near a window. Hope I haven't scared it off, don't think it was there today though.
We get quite alot of wildlife, rabbits, squirels, slow worms, frogs, toads, a robin last year followed me around the plot when I was digging, sometimes sitting just a couple of ft away. Then there's all the bee's and butterflies in the summer. Heard a grasshopper on another plot last year, was ever so envious, I hadn't heard one of those in this country since I was a child, and then about Aug/Sept time heard one on my plot
