Last week saw the first proper crop coming from the allotment (proper in the sense of actually getting all the way home and eaten as part of a meal, rather than the occasional berry nibbled as I work!)
They aren’t the first strawberries on the plot, but they are the first ones that have managed to ripen since I put some netting over the plants – the birds have been fed well enough for now.
This pot is about half a pound of strawberries, which made a perfect sized pudding with some single cream and a touch of sugar between the two of us. There’s still lots of fruit and even a few lingering flowers on the plants, so hopefully this will be the first pudding of many that we get over the next few weeks.
Unless I eat them all on the plot, of course…
