Every morning, I peer at the greenery in my pots and make mental notes on their sprouting progress (I imagine this is what parenting might be like, no? 😉 ). After a weekend away, I came back to find that the little green baubles that had been hanging there previously had turned into the most delicious looking red strawberries (cue the happy dance). I ate them in the sunshine with a friend, who agreed with equal enthusiasm that they were much, much better than the ones from the supermarket.
I found that the strawberries were very easy to grow – and they grew fast! I think that for a beginner gardener, you can’t really go wrong with growing a pot of these.
A useful tip: Apparently strawberries spoil quickly once washed, so only wash immediately before serving.
