Summer Strawberries

Just outside our office is a raised bed. A couple of years ago we were wondering what to do with it and we thought it would be a good idea to plant it with strawberries and boy are we glad we did!

This year we have had a bumper crop of the most delicious strawberries.

I can't remember all the varieties that we planted as they were picked up here and there, however I bought a couple of 'Emily' strawberry plants from a plant stall at a village fete and they have rewarded us with the best fruit this year.

The only problem is that its only too tempting to sneak outside and snack on a few while nobody is looking!


  1. Its been a great year for them. Best way to eat them is straight from the garden. x

  2. It's so nice to be able to enjoy the fruits of your labours.
    I no longer have strawberries in the garden, so, I am rather envious of you being able to pop out for a strawberry fix whenever you are tempted.



Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, we love to hear what you have to say.
