It’s a marvel to me that anything survived the cold, cold winter we had this year. Sleeping under a blanket of snow obviously suited the strawberries and we’re enjoying the juicy benefits of fruit grown in snow soaked soil. Big, succulent, sun warmed strawberries; my elevenses of choice at the moment.
A snack sized punnet of 10 strawberries at Wimbledon would cost you £2.50 this year. Scandalous! My strawberry patch has flourished since last summer’s move to a new bed and are the star performers on my plot, alongside raspberries, for yields of scrumminess per time spent tending them (which is not a lot!)
