A few weeks ago I took the fleece barrier from around the strawberries. It had been a 100% success, and we’ve had the best strawberry crop ever.

The bed was badly in need of weeding, there seemed to be more chickweed than strawberries. At one corner I discovered a nicotiana had taken up residence. I don’t know where it had come from as I didn’t grow any last year nor this. Anyway, I decided to let it stay.

I’m so glad I did. It’s been flowering it’s socks off for weeks, as you can see.
