Fresh strawberries are one of my favourites and finding them in my backyard is even better.
We have been in our new house now for 2 years and we noticed what looked like a strawberry bush in our backyard. It got effected by the good old Melbourne weather last year when it got to 42 degrees and didn't look so crash hot. Dad rigged up 2 star pickets and cable tied 2 umbrellas on the ends of them so when it was going to be hot we would open them up so they wouldn't get burnt.
Worked like a charm and since then the bush has tripled in size.
Today I picked our first strawberries how good do they look...
We had them today with some cream and they were the best. They are also organic as I am a little lacking in the looking after them department but they have done surprisingly well and not many insects have attacked them.
Anway just thought I'd share.
