Strawberries and Wimbledon – everyone’s a winner

Coinciding with a little-known tennis competition win, comes the equally as exciting news that my first strawberry from my garden has arrived.

A Strawberry
The first Strawberry of 2013.

Plump and smelling of that wonderful strawberry aroma, Strawberry ‘Elsanta’ has provided its first fruit and it is now sitting in my fridge.

I’ve been buying strawberries lately, but this is the first this year, from plants that managed to survive a winter (they haven’t tended to in the past, despite the severity of the winter we had this time).

There’s plenty of strawberries coming, including ones from my recently purchased Strawberry ‘Judibell’ plant, I’ve just got to remember to keep watering them so that they have enough to produce more of these red fruits.
