Strawberry Central

I know it’s autumn and well past the fruit growing season (well in Scotland anyway) but I just wanted to record my attempt at strawberries this year.

I tried two ways of growing: in the ground and in hanging baskets. The ones in the ground were not so fruitful but the basket ones were absolutely superb. I think this may be due to the fact that the basket was located close to our gas boiler vent so they got a blast of hot air every time the tap was run (or the heating was on). It’s been a pretty non-eventful summer on the sun front.

Anyway, the top pic was taken in May and the next one is July. Hopefully the ones in the ground will bear fruit next year.
