First strawberries.

16/Aug/2009

In the spring I planted some strawberry seeds. After a slow start we ended up with quite a lot of small plants, some went in the garden and some stayed in the house.

The indoor plants somehow managed to get infested with aphids but I sprayed them with a 'soap and chilli' solution and it seemed to do the trick. There were a couple of small ripe berries on one plant so I picked them, and of course washed them thoroughly to wash the soap and chilli off them.

They were alpine strawberries so of course they were quite small - about the size of the tip of my little finger. What they lacked in size they made up for in flavour. It doesn't look like we're going to get a huge strawberry harvest but at least it will be a small but tasty one.

There appear to be some strange place names in Shropshire. I noticed these while checking the route to Ironbridge.

I hope there really aren't towns called Dummy2643 and Dummy2792.
