They look yummy. I’ve had to ditch my strawbs. That will teach me to try new and unusual varieties. They were so tasty, but they just weren’t growing at all. I think I’d have been waiting for the first berries in September! So I sowed some carrots instead, and maybe try a better variety next year.

I love honey on everything Paul I also like Balsamic vinegar on Strawberries ..
These have done really well this year Karen we're picking them every day , before we moved it was a fight to see who could get them first us or the squirrel luckily the squirrel hasn't found us here 'yet '

They look luscious. Do you know the variety? I've been picking Cambridge Favourite for a while, the 3 special plant varieties I bought last Autumn are loaded with fruit, but just starting to ripen.

Amy: To keep the squirrels away, Empty your vacuum cleaner 'fulff' around your strawberries. Sounds crazy but it really works. The scent of humans & predators is enough to drive them off.
