Strawberry season

Strawberries mark the start of summer and provoke Pavlovian dog style anticipation but, as in so many years, the first pickingsStrawberries close up had very disappointing flavour. Just as I was despairing and the first complaints started arriving, the flavour developed (no one knows why) and I am confident this will
improve further as we get into the main season.

    I think early strawberries lack flavour if there is lots of rain but little real sun and warmth. Only a guess but maybe that is why the flavour has developed.

  2. The flavour has certainly developed – the last bunch were gorgeous, and the cream that came with them a huge treat. thanks!
