Today is Juneuary 4th. It has been cold, grey and rainy for a few days, and this trend is set to continue through early next week.
This afternoon there was a break in the rain and Oliver and I picked the seasons first batch of strawberries. There were more than I expected, just over a dozen. Several had been pre-sampled by birds and other creatures, several more were super-over-ripe to the point of being black and moldy (I should probably go in with gloves and pick them out so O doesn’t get into them).
We sampled a few of them on the way into the house, they’re quite good, and I suspect they’ll be excellent with waffles at breakfast tomorrow.
