No strawberries left for Wimbledon!

Hi all, I think I'll be harvesting the last of the strawberries this coming week and have been picking for about 3 weeks.  Usually, the crop peaks during the Wimbledon fortnight.  Anyone else had early cropping?
A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Mine are finished but then they are grown under glass. 
    Raspberries are coming on though.

  • Wimbledon has been put back a week in the last couple of years, to increase the breathing space after the French Open. Always used to be the last week of June and first week of July but now does not coincide with June-bearing strawberries. Fatal planning mistake by the Wimbledon authorities.

    I read very recently that the weather earlier this year has produced a bumper and earlier crop.
