So far so good

Planted some seeds in a sunny spot that can get quite hot, yet seedlings all grow well and don't seem to be bothered too much.

Strong germination. The four plants the slugs missed grew into sprawling bushes giving continual, interestingly flavoured fruit from January through to May. Our kids loved hunting for the fallen fruits.
