    Wild Strawberries growing on the edge of the Top Wood.

    that got me thinking JJ

    I've seen tomatoes growing wild in sewage treatment works.. they thrive in human waste.. they have even been found growing in human waste on railway tracks.. :eek:

    wonder where your strawberry plant came from.. :whistle:


    just saying like.. ;)
