Strawberry Queen


We are well into the strawberry season now and we've been eating them day and night, this is the third year I've had my allotment and I've been bringing back a whole carrier bag everynight - I even dream I'm picking them in my sleep !!


So far we've picked 56 punnets of strawberries since may the 29th, yes I have been measuring every load I bring back ( sad I know ) - just to prove to my husband that the allotment is'nt just an expensive hobby , espec. since I bought the poly. Anyway there's lots more to come, the freezers already starting to fill up and all the cream that goes with them is'nt helping  my running so I've just bought a food dehydrater - can't wait to play!


More pretty pictures of my strawberry / fairy kitchen




Even Fudge has started eating them


I just love the new colour of my workshop, yellow is such a happy sunny colour, something we don't get too much of up here in Cumbria


Last week ws a busy week for dinosaurs, this week for some reason it's rockets
