Berries and accessory fruits.

I'm wondering whether to make the greenhouse primarily a strawberry zone and fill it with early fruit.  The plants in there are storming away producing loads of fruit, and the ones up the garden are still developing. 

There were some British strawberries in Morrison's today, but they were Elsanta and seemed scentless, so I deemed them pointless and left them to others.

Am a little disappointed that after all the blossom on cherry Summer Sun, only a small percentage of the blooms have turned into tiny green cherries.  Shortage of bees, perhaps?  We seem to have a reasonable number of bumbles (though I think possibly less than usual), but despite having neighbours who make honey, I've seen about 2 honeybees so far this year.
