A Handful of Strawberries

I’m not sure why but I seem to be having a great year of strawberries, maybe it’s the weather? I planted up my new strawberry bed up a few months ago with brand new plants, I hoped I would get a few this year but I really am surprised at how many we’ve been getting. But what I’m even more impressed with is the size of strawberry! They are literally huge, big enough to fill my palm.

Myself and Oli rarely make it back from the plot with strawberries, we tend to huddle over the strawberry bed like big kids and eat the, straight from the plant. I don’t think there is anything nicer than picking something and eating it straight away whilst it’s so fresh! One day maybe we’ll make it home with a few and I’ll be able to experiment with maybe some strawberry gin, but until then I’m happy to enjoy each one whilst on the plot.
