Updates from Netherby
Some kind of creature was getting into the strawberries even though they were covered with wire mesh so I shouted them a cloth-covered tunnel with pegs to keep unwanted critters out. It has worked a treat and the strawberries are untouched.
The cherry tomatoes have been growing well and outgrew their bamboo stakes so I have restaked them with much bigger ones. I was inspired by Simone15nz’s tomatoes to be honest! I also gave them a good dosage of Yates Tomato Thrive fertiliser.
The beans are slowly climbing up the archway, a lot slower than I thought but maybe they are waiting for the warmer weather.
We had family over in the weekend and I decided to rustle up some cupcakes using beetroot from the garden. I used a recipe that can be made as a cake or cupcakes where you grate the beetroot into the mixture. So delicious and like nature’s red velvet cake! Practically a health food with all that beetroot!

Happy Gardening everyone!
