Fraises du jardin

« Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es. »
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

If we ‘are what I eat’ then this month I am a cross between a cherry
and a strawberry… far from French gastronomy: simple seasonal fare.
‘The strawberry patch’ is producing dozens of fraises each day – perhaps
after two years (and a relocation from the old walled aquaduct to a more
spacious plot) it has reached the point of contentment that allows it
to declare “Formally established in my new home” and express it’s
happiness in the form of an abundance of plump fruit… or it could just
be the rain. There is still a lack of sunshine – the fruit aren’t as sweet
as they could be – yet who can complain when such a wonderful harvest
presents itself…

The first harvest

More and more each day...
