My hands down favourite thing in my garden this year has been my strawberry patch. I think I could have filled a truck with all the strawberries that it has produced this year, and they are still going! We're not getting many now, but probably once a week we get a big bowl full like this.
I planted about six plants last summer, and then planted out all the little runners that came off them, so we probably have about fifteen plants now.
I've kind of neglected them too, they didn't get much water over summer, and I don't feed them with anything, the only thing I do is mulch them with pine needles at the start of the season.
The other day we were out there foraging for berries and I was just thinking about how much I love those little plants, and how good they have been to us when I found this leaf.
