Hot weather and strawberries

“Strawberries, and only strawberries, could now be thought or spoken of. “The best fruit in England – every body’s favourite – always wholesome. These the finest beds and finest sorts. Delightful to gather for one’s self – the only way of really enjoying them. StrawberriesMorning decidedly the best time – never tired – every sort of good – hautboys infinitely superior – no comparison – the others hardly eatable – hautboys very scarce – Chili preferred – white wood finest flavor of all – price of strawberries in London – abundance about Bristol – Maple Grove – cultivation – beds when to be renewed – gardeners thinking exactly different – no general rule – gardeners never to be put out of their way – delicious fruit – only too rich to be eaten much of – inferior to cherries – currants more refreshing – only objection to gathering strawberries the stooping – glaring sun – tired to death – could bear it no longer – must go and sit in the shade.”

We’re right in the middle of the strawberry season here. So at the moment we have strawberries for everything! Almost. And just like at the Donwell strawberry picking party we are also having some very hot weather! It’s lovely! But that said, it’s almost too hot for you to be able to do much, I’ll have to agree with Frank Churchill there. 😉

    You are just so lucky! Strawberry season came and went very fast for us here on the east coast.

    It will probably be over here before I know it too, so I’ll try to enjoy it as much as I can while it lasts! 🙂
