Only a few but what a few!

Two post in one day - sorry but I couldn't add this to my Wordless Wednesday post and it was something well worth sharing!

Yesterday was host to one of the eagerly anticipated events of the year. Our first picking and eating of freshly ripe strawberries.
Not many I know but plenty more to come.
Just hoping we don't get a heavy downpour to spoil things!

  2. They look delicious...I wonder if the weed control helped them ripen that little bit quicker as the sun reflected back onto the strawberries?? I guess the only way to know would be to ask others at your allotment if they have ripe strawberries yet.

    1. I think the control would have to be white to do that Tanya, but it may warm things up. These were from an early variety of strawberry too and for that variety are a bit late.

  3. The first strawberry of the season is such an event. I've had a taste of our first strawberry, but only a taste as daughter got to it first.

  4. Whether it's just one or many Strawberries have got to be one of the most delicious tastes of the season.

    1. I totally agree, Rooko - hope yesterday's heavy rain didn't spoil the ones still to fully ripen!

    1. They are 'earlies' though Elaine! I'm guessing all the rain of the last couple of days will have squished some!
