Tiny, delicate strawberries are beginning to ripen in my garden. Not the big, massive, watery berries you buy in the store, but fraises des bois strawberries. They embody sweet-tart in a whole new way. I am tickled pink at the sight of them. The raspberry and blackberry canes and other fruits look so very healthy. The garden looks great, we just need some sunshine to warm things up and get growing and ripening cycles to kick on. The English spring is great for the flowers but not so good for the veggies - which would probably prefer an Italian spring.
