Summer fruits!

Today I’ve spotted the first more-or-less ripe summer fruits of the season: wild strawberries, up on the viaduct!

Unfortunately there aren’t enough to be worth collecting to bring home. And they’re at a level to be sprayed by the many passing dogs. It’ll still be the best part of three months before the blackberries bring an abundance of goodness up there. But I expect the shops will very soon be carrying a seasonal abundance of delicious things that are fresh and local: we’re already getting summer fruit from Spain rather than shipped right round the world.

  1. I’ve had my first Tamar Valley strawberries already, and they were very decent too.
