These alpine wild strawberries were not planted by me or the neighbours, but by its very nature of being 'wild' and invasive they have self seeded and have been creeping from the neighbours into our front porch, not even the garden plot - winding and weaving its way in the paving slabs - I love it actually. And they are the most sweetest berry I have ever eaten in my life, proper natural sugar berry burst.
Whilst I was weeding at the back, I discovered, a pot of red gooseberries.
I had forgotten about it actually, we picked it up from a garden centre last yer and wow - look at these berries, hardly a harvest, but a unexpected present from the garden indeed. I have put the red gooseberries into a larger container, until I can decide where to give it its permanent spot.
We and the pests in the garden have been enjoying the wet summer strawberries. They are not as abundant as they were last year, but its better than not having them at all.
I picked my first raspberry yesterday, but I won't have long to wait to pick a bowl full for my cereal bowl.
Now to our greenhouse. We have a couple of tomato plants, but nothing much to show there as of yet. This is D's courgette is growing in the greenhouse and he had been boasting at how big his it; and if you look below, that is mine sad specimen
Some lettuce and salad greens growing in the greenhouse. The salad leaves will be ready come this weekend.And finally, a different view of the plot. We erected the trellis at the back a few weeks back. It has climbing beans tied and growing along it, except I am not that optimistic, I have a sinking feeling the slugs will get them.
Well, that's all folks, the weeding and digging continues. I do hope you have liked my wild strawberries and red gooseberries. Harvest Monday is hosted by Dave over Our Happy Acres.
