First Strawberries Of The Season

Yesterday I picked my first crop of strawberries off the allotment, they're late this year due to the weather, it was very cold through May and June.

Yet again it's the plants planted through black plastic that are well ahead of the others.

The older row are three years old this year, so it's their last. As I did before, I'll root runners, grow them on in pots back at the house and then plant them out afresh in the autumn.
