Sowing and reaping

One of the the things I love about gardening is that once you have done the work, you can leave the plants and come back sometime later and harvest yummy food. It is amazing how things grow without your input.

Hadn't had a feed of berries for a few days so went out picking. A big bowl of very bright red strawberries much riper and reder than what you get in the store, so hence much more sweeter. A handful of small white wild strawberries - infinitely sweeter than any other berries I have ever tasted. A handful or raspberries and a bowl of thornless boysenberries.

Hmmm what a wonderful way to end dinner - fingers stained with red berry juice.
