Yesterday we picked the first two ripe strawberries from the strawberry patch. The first was picked early in the morning, a slug had started to nibble one side, but I ate the rest cut up on my breakfast oats. Late in the evening I checked the strawberry patch and spotted this perfect strawberry ripe and ready to eat - by us and not the slugs during the night. I picked it at once and cut it in half so we could have half each – 'Gariguette' – the most perfect, intense, strawberry-flavour ever!
