Mostly red

Just before I came home from the plot yesterday morning I picked the first handful each of raspberries and strawberries.  There are plenty more to follow by the look of it.

I had them as they were with a dusting of demerara sugar.  They were delicious, especially the raspberries which I prefer.

At home flowers are just starting to appear on my Red Robin tomatoes so now I’ll be watering them with a liquid feed.

I forgot to mention on Sunday that yesterday was the start of National Insect Week 2012.

Happy gardening!

    Beautiful! I prefer raspberries too! But we can’t get them here! We can get strawberries but nothing like home-grown ones from home. I did make some jam with them though…and I have some seeds so I can try growing them here next winter! Everything is backward here!!! Enjoy!

  2. Your raspberries look luscious,Flighty. Mine must be autumn ones so because there is ne’re a flower to be seen yet ! We (and many grandkids ) have been enjoying strawberries for a while now, as have the local population of ANTS !

      Cath they tasted as good as look. I’ve got a mix of summer and autumn ones. It’s a nuisance that we have to share strawberries with the wildlife. xx

    Strawberries over raspberries for me every time. I too have picked the first few over the last few days, delicious they were too. Your tomatoes are ahead of mine, they’re growing so slowly this year and there isn’t a hint of any flowers yet.

    Picking loads of strawbs at the moment, Flighty. We’ve loss quite a few to fungal problems – all this wet weather and slugs, ditto but still have more than enough. No rasps yet but picked the first few tayberries today, yey!! And blackcurrants are enormous and slowly turning black. Already planning a summer fruit pudding.

      Welly it seems that most of us are. Fungal problems are not surprising with the weather we’ve had.
      A summer fruit pudding sounds rather delicious. xx
