Photo Article: Expanding the strawberry production at the Welsh Hovel

The main strawberry bed is still on badger hill. But the plants have all shot runners and so I am opening up a new area of strawberry production in the main vegetable garden, what was known as the jungle. So far this expansion is half complete and I could go further but i am minded that with plans afoot for expanding production of fruit and other vegetables next year there is only so much space, even in an area the size of a small football pitch. A problem to ponder.

The area to the right of these new plants has lettuces, winter spinach and then winter potatoes. and next to that are winter sprouts,leeks, cabbages and cauliflowers. As you all panic about emptying supermarket shelves, all looks good here at the Hovel.
