Weekend work

I haven't done a great deal in the garden this weekend as I did my sponsored swim yesterday. Despite some aching muscles though, I managed to dig up the remains of last year's rainbow chard and kale. We had a pretty good crop of chard, but the kale never really came to anything. I think the problem with the kale was that it didn't get a very good start, being attacked by caterpillars. I left the chard all through the Winter, and the sparrows have been helping themselves - hopefully they took a few bugs too!

I also tidied up the strawberries. The instructions said to remove runners in the first year, but I obviously didn't do a very good job. As a result, I now have about 12 more plants to pot up. Free plants any-one?!
