I feel like Ozymandias, King of Kings

I've already had a LOT of strawberries out of the greenhouse this year - but this was today's haul.

If the production increases again next year, I can see me actually making strawberry jam. Normally I don't bother, because fresh strawberries are so much nicer than jam (particularly in scones with clotted cream!) But that is... a lot of strawberries.

I sowed some basil seeds in the greenhouse today. I suspect that as usual they will get eaten by whatever it is that lurks in the greenhouse, spurning strawberries and just waiting for fresh basil seedlings, but I thought I'd give it a go.

In other news, the fig tree has a LOT of big green figs on it. I am hopeful for a decent fig harvest this year. More Sun Please!

Up on the heath, the whortleberries are well in bloom. If we do get More Sun then that will probably be bad on the whortleberry front as they like it damp, but at the moment things are looking promising.
