Almost, almost strawberries...

04 October, 2011

The Fraises des Bois have their first baby strawberry! I’m so excited, I can hardly wait to try it. This is one of the many alpine strawberries which apparently are intensely flavoured tiny little strawberries from which the big (and so often tasteless) supermarket strawberries have been bred.
That said, the bigger berries can still be pretty tasty when home grown. Most of the strawberries (in the ground, in pots, and in the strawberry wall) are sending out flowers left, right and centre and some also have tiny fruits forming. Yay!

The berries under glass are more well developed, but not that far ahead. Though they may ripen up faster under the glass than relying on the inconsistent Melbourne sunshine.

Though this one is clearly way out in front! Though not for long...
