Our Strawberries are very late this year. The squirells are enjoying some very small green things whereas this time last year they had been tucking into fully grown fruit for about a fortnight. Assisted by the Blackbirds of course.

I'm not terribly keen on Strawberry's but I still have to go picking every year. I just sit in the car or on the grass and read the paper. Well as for as long as I can get away with it.

I think it should be made quite clear that you are referring to Strawberries and not pockets.

I only eat English strawberries.The taste is far superior to others in my opinion.

I try to eat seasonal veg and that way you can buy British produce .Less air miles and superior flavour.

I think that this subject should be moved to the silliness thread, I feel another marathon coming on. Astoness knows what I am doing anyway.
