It seems to be perfect strawberry growing weather at the moment - days of monsoon-like rain, followed by hot hot sunshine. For the past few nights, after I've watered the garden, I've gathered a handful of strawberries. A sprinkle of sugar, a splodge of Greek yoghurt, and a toasted slice of brioche makes for a tasty pud indeed. They're the first proper harvest of fruit from the garden this year which just makes them even lovelier. If someone could just tell that to my little one, as all strawberry slices that have been proffered her way so far have met with their fate on the floor. She can't be a strawberry hater?!
In the next few weeks we'll head to the local fruit farm (we haven't been there before - they have animals to visit too so it should be a popular trip!) and fill our baskets with strawberries, ready to cook up into crimson jam. I can't wait!
