Our vegetable patch is producing many seasonal delights, including English spinach. I never tire of the voluminous basket of green that somehow reduces to three little bags for the freezer, weighing hardly half a kilo (about one pound). Doesn't take away from how delicious it is! At the top of the patch WMBM is psyching out the satin bower birds - and managed to deter their presence by raising the height of the netting above our strawberries. One satin bower bird is a delight, two a surprise, three is a wonder ... but twenty of the blighters don't leave many strawberries or early tomatoes for us.
