Great idea re the squash @clothmama
I m going to try to grow mine up something this year too, in the hope they won't get as eaten by stuff.
I ve put them near the fence and might make a frame. Hoping to grow courgette underneath to make good use of the space left.
Strawberries look fab too :thumbsup:

Eeek that is so bad I've not planted anything for 3 weeks :shock: :shock: - well I have put flowers in and been doing lots of watering and I guess between that and a sick baby but really need to get my skates on for the stuff that needs to go in this month! Would have done more this morning but it was getting really hot and Remy had a tantrum and wanted to come in (ridiculous when he has a huge garden with a trampoline, swing, slide and sandpit :roll: )

Also done lots of weeding this morning and got J to dig up a bramble that had come up in the new round bed. I lifted the cardboard / straw that I put down so he could get to it and even I was amazed - all the weeds gone (except the odd bit of bramble and one or 2 other very strong weeds) and lovely rich looking soil with loads of wonderful little animals and just looking at my job list that was done just 2 months ago :shock: No dig gardening just rocks!!!! :yahoo: :yahoo:
