The day has (finally) come to plant our first berries! We have 15-20 friends and family up to help plant out the beds with some 1,800-ish plants! (we think) Pete’s mum is making her epic lasagna and Claire’s mum has gone all out on sweets to help fuel some enthusiastic strawberry planters.
We started out slow as we taught (and learnt) the best method for planting each runner, by 12:30 we had planted out the first variety, Albion. After lunch we were able to polish of the second variety, San Andreas, in less than 2 hours!
A huge thanks from Claire and I to all that helped out on the day! Cant wait to pick our first berries (hopefully) with you soon!
