Plentiful strawberries

Yesterday I picked my first strawberries and they were plentiful.  I picked loads into the trug as pictured.  Mind you there were also lots of mouldy ones where the rain had got to them, but there were lots of lovely red ones.  Neil had made a netting shroud to go over and around the strawberry beds to keep the birds off, especially the blackbirds, as they are very partial to strawberries, so that had helped keep our crop OK.

Last night we had strawberries and cream for dessert at dinner, then this morning we had them on our breakfast cereals.  I also cut some up into my yoghurt at lunchtime.  Its not difficult me for to eat them with every meal as I love them so much, but I guess I shall be making some strawberry jam soon too for my B&B guests to have with their breakfast.
