Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while will know that I am a passionate vegetable gardener. After all it was the premise of this whole blog: allotment2kitchen, but life has changed dramatically since late 2010 and things don't seem to be improving, in spite of all my efforts. Still I hope and remain a optimist, encouraged by my husband that things will get better.
Anyway, this is a way of saying that there is not much going on in my rented garden: a small herb patch and lots of weeds. The wildlife are happy though, especially the bumble bees. And Oh and there are strawberries!
Some of you may remember in June I mentioned that I had unearthed a small patch of strawberry plants that I has planted last year when I had moved into the house. Well the delicate white strawberry flowers have now turned into juicy blood red strawberries. I enjoyed some yesterday simply with a drizzle of honey and cream, and today I made a Strawberry and Vanilla Lassi. I will share the recipe with you tomorrow
For now just gaze at these sweet deep red shapely strawberries .
