Today's harvest

Sometimes you spend £25 on a dozen strawberry plants and get nowhere near the financial return. Four years is the accepted life of a plant. With a fair wind, you might get 3 or 4 kilos of fruit a year and some decent runners.

Strawberries have yet to be a success in my garden. This is the sixth year or so using a planter. To date, I’ve had zero edible fruit. Meanwhile, the half forgotten runners and five year old plants are cropping.

Today, a £25 taste of sweet fruit.

In contrast, the last of the spring cabbage from a £1.99 packet of seeds.

Which tastes sweeter?
