Interesting that this time last year I had been eating home grown strawberries for a week or so. Of course they were grown in the (now in the process of being recycled) polytunnel, and the spring was also warmer last year. Having said all that, they are coming on well outside, and look as though they will be ready to eat in a few weeks.
The cherries are also just starting to turn red. I was surprised by how many we got last year as I was expecting our numerous birds to get most of them. Maybe they were too stuffed with nuts and sunflower seeds to bother….
