With this beautiful weather our strawberry plants have been going crazy and given us ample amounts of fruit to use in the restaurant, sell in the shop and make yummy jam & ice-cream with!
This weekend we have recycled the older strawberry plants and given half of our polytunnels a good clean out and strim ready for the new. This weekend our planting team have been very busy popping rows and rows of our young plants into our large polytunnels - so in just a couple of weeks we will have a brand new fresh crop to harvest.
The planting team got up extra early to avoid the high temperatures we’ve been enjoying and as well as re-potting hundreds of young strawberry plants they had to make sure the watering system in each polytunnel was evenly spaced and working so the new plants can thrive. Even the balckbirds have been taking advantage of the clearing out and grabbing as many worms as they can!
Watching the plants grow and produce such sweet tasting fruit never gets old.
