    Spent a very happy morning yesterday picking summer fruits at our local Pick Your Own.  I can’t believe how lucky we are to have strawberries, raspberries, tayberries, gooseberries and cherries growing five minutes down the road.

    The kids loved it and were stunned into silence (unusual!) when we had them with homemade meringues and cream as Sunday dessert!

    Warmed-by-the-sun strawberries - my favourite!

      There’s nothing quite like it, is there. Yum!

      I grow my own strawberries and raspberries. The raspberries are an autumn-fruiting variety but, because of the very warm spring we had, the flipping things are fruiting now, at the same time as the strawberries!
