We have a fairly small garden and although I have my allotment to grow vegetables, I still like to grow a few things in the garden. Every year I try to squeeze a bit more in and when I looked at this patch I wondered if I've gone a bit too far. Underneath a minature apple tree, Discovery, I have strawberries plus some chives and some peppermint (for peppermint tea). A couple of weeks ago I thought there might be room between the strawberry plants for something else and so I moved a few ruby chard plants. I am now wondering if the chard will shade the strawberries too much but you never know it might all work.
