A Gardening Calendar in an Edinburgh Allotment
Yes, those really do look like mine! I chose to propagate the runners from this particular plant out of a whole selection of others because of the taste and appearance. Clearly the best for me! Yours look divine.
Usually I can blame the tardiness of my plants on Scottish weather, but I see I'll have to invest in some Honeyoe! Well done!
They do look pretty! Are they everbearing? My strawberries stopped producing, but I was told that if I cut off older leaves, they will start to flower again. And I think its working, as I have seen a few new flowers.
Mm yum, mine aren't honeoy but there are a few ready to pick, I ate a couple yesterday and expect a good few pickings over the next few warm sunny days.
Mine are Marshmello, Flamenco and Florence but I can't remember which is which after taking so many runners. All are lovely and we are now picking fruit - we had masses of it last year so hope for a repeat.
Mine are Mara des bois and Tenira and both varieties are a couple of weeks behind yours.
MMMmmmmmmmmmmmm I love strawberries!!! We are just starting to get some ripening on our plot too....there is nothing quite like the taste of freshly picked strawberries!!
Damn, damn, damn! I did no fruit at all, what with it being the first year. Now I regret it.
Matron - that's intriguingIzzy - They're worth it. I started with two and they soon multiplied.Mojo - These are the come in a rush and then wait till next year sort! Rachael - I'm bragging because I'm in Edinburgh - but I first tasted these in Wales and selected them because I liked the flavour - the fact they are early is a bonus.GLA - I am bringing on some Florence (and Cambridge Favourite) to extend the season at home ... but Marsmello are reputedly the wunder-strawb. Are they really as good as they say? Alex - I bet they taste good when they're ready.Tany - You said it!Iggy - Every year is a new frontier of discovery.
