Still hanging on...

I thought I would give you an update on the strawberries after seeing Mademoiselle Chaos flaunting her strawberry flowers...


As the weather at the moment is not very summery, our harvest decreased very much. I still hope they will return to full bloom once the so called summer really started (right now it's around 20°C and cloudy), but if they won't blossom any longer we will feed them to the monster gerbils...

Some of the plants moved to a planter which was planned to hang right outside the window. It didn't work out because of space issues, so the container now fills the windowsill. The basil in there is growing strong and the two strawberries from the cups found a new home in there as well. On the right you can see the salad and spinach we are growing:


And as I finally gave up trying to put herbs in our kitchen window (which goes to the north and is facing some houses), all survivors also moved to the living room.
