Wednesday Tips #6 2015

strawberriesIn my back garden I have an old wheelbarrow which some time ago I converted into a planter box. Currently there are strawberry plants growing in the barrow. It is great for the grandchildren to see where strawberries come from and we have watched the flowers, the little berries form and then grow over the past months. Because of the possums which share my garden, ( and the occasional visiting fox), I have covered the wheelbarrow with black netting to protect the fruit. Several days ago Miss 6 noticed that there were some red berries and she was most excited to be able to pick the strawberries she found. Although very small, and only enough for a taste each, they were deliciously sweet and fragrant straight from the plants.
