After a bit of a cloudy and misty start to the day by mid morning the sun was out giving us another lovely sunny and mild April day.
On the plot we finished planting out our new strawberry plants.
We want to keep a note of each of the varieties to see which performs and tastes the best. All the rows of plants have been labelled conventionally with a plastic label and written on using a permanent marker pen. In our case permanent normally means around 6 months in summer and even less in winter months. As a long term solution all the varieties have been marked up on our allotment plans using the Growveg.com garden planner. The plan will have the the crops grown in each bed marked up this year and the plan copied forward to the next and subsequent years.

At least this way once the permanent marker ink has disappeared of the labels we will have a record of which strawberries are where stored safely in “the cloud”.
