Rhododendron flowers, onions and stawberries

The rhododendron flowers are blooming! Such a vibrant red.

I harvested 2 onions today. I can't remember what variety they are, but they're white, and taste like spring onions. 

The rest are starting to flower, Dad says cut off the flowers to preserve the energy in the onions...
 But they're so pretty! I put them in a little vase in the house.

I harvested 9 alpine strawberries today.

Here's a pic of a cool scarecrow, spotted in Pontyclun allotments the other day.

The slugs continue to eat the broadbeans and flowers, here's a good article my Dad spotted in the Telegraph, about dealing with slugs in an organic garden.
