We are definitely in the middle of major strawberry production time. Substantial yields started last week, and this week we’ve been picking 2+ pounds every other day.
We don’t seem to be eating as many straight out of the garden as we did last year, but that’s no problem because it leaves more for freezing and jam.
The torrential rains over the last week have done a number on the strawberries, causing them to split, go bad more quickly and develop fruit rot. So far the fruit rot has been much much less than last year, so I’m hoping the path I carved out of the middle of the bed is helping by providing more air circulation and light.
What’s your favourite way to eat strawberries?
