There is nothing better than a glut in the veg and fruit beds. It allows for creativity in working out just what to do with those marrow sized courgettes or 50 lettuces which all need to be picked at the same time. Happily this weekend’s glut was several pounds of strawberries which the small people took great delight in picking and turning into a couple of pots of jam and a rather splendid strawberry cake.
I love to have them in the kitchen even though things can get a bit fraught at times with arguments about who is cracking the eggs…
And the proud moment of near completion
And the inevitable conclusion
