I am so jealous mine are just starting to swell no way near ready and now with rain and clouds all week it is n't going to be any time soon.  I think I should start getting fruit from end of June depending on the weather.  There is one thing for certain none will make it home the 500 yards from plot to home.  My 3 little helpers, that is when there are peas or soft fruit to eat, ensure they do not go to waste.
Time waits for no man and I can't wait for growth.

I get woodlice in all my strawberry pots at home JatG, I always thought they didn't grow in pots very well (small mount of little fruits) because they were not getting the room for the roots.
   Room for thought there, maybe I'll raise them off the ground in the garden in future

I think the lipped holes in the strawberry planter provided the perfect dark and moist conditions amongst the plant roots for the woodlice to hide in. They then went about their business to the considerable detriment of the plants.

Don't think this is likely to happen in the open garden (hope not, anyway!)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older.

Still waiting for mine - I have two trays of alpine strawberries grown from seed this year but they have struggled and only now putting on any growth so no fruit off them this time but next year tiny strawberry heaven :)
