Waiting game

Is anyone else eagerly waiting for their strawberries to ripen?

    I'll need to wait for the fruit to form first  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Yup, we've had 1 ripe one so far and there's a few that will be ready in a couple of days (they look like your far right one with a tiny blush)

    I’ve had a small handful ripen, squirrels are picking the green ones and spitting out the seeds everywhere though.

    After 2 bowls harvested some weeks ago all we have now are green ones. Not sure why they have stopped ripening but hopefully they will soon before the mice get them.

    Yes! And I'm always grateful if I get some before the woodlice. 😄
  • Put the net over mine the other day in anticipation. Spent the last 2 night picking vine weevils offthe leaves. Must of got nearly 20 over 2 nights.
