A week of Firsts

There is nothing, absolutely nothing to compare with the taste of English strawberries! Especially the ones that you grow yourself. Mine are just starting to ripen now, and it is not just the birds that I have to watch out for... my dog Buddy just loves to pick and eat strawberries himself. We found that out last year after having accused everyone in the family, I caught him red-handed (pawed!).
Thought I would also share this with you.. I went into the garage today and found that the last of my Lincolnshire potatoes had sprouted! About 4ft tall.
