Before I drown…

It’s that time of year when the strawberry plants start shooting out their runners. The plants I have are not just good fruit producers but they are experts at reproduction.


Unfortunately, I doubt a strawberry plant, no matter how robust, would survive the pond, so the runner has been rehoused in a pot from which nothing germinated. Hopefully, the seed within won’t now decide to compete with its neighbour.

On a completely different note, I’m so pleased to see the echinacea flowering. I hope this too will be a strong reproducer, so that in the future I will have more than just the two flowers.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
