Well so far I've had at least 12 pounds of the buggers (and nearly half as much again have gone unpicked and rotted/spoiled). Problem is, picking them involves a lot of time and bending over and my back's not particularly good at bending.
I've made jam, ice cream, given loads away and have a shopping bag full of frozen ones that I don't really know what to do with. Needless to say, I'll be halving the amount of plants for next year.
Anyway, some picture highlights of this year's strawberry bonanza.
A small fraction of the strawberries so far picked
Strawberry that looks a bit like someone facing right
Strawberry that looks a bit like a boot (or Italy if you like)
Allotment bath tub lilies are in bloom, but the tadpoles/frogs appeared to have either hopped off, or not made it.
